Written by Shayna Korol | August 09, 2018 | Print  |

Brigham Redd, MD, is the first surgeon in Idaho to offer OMNIlife science's OMNIBotics for robotic-assisted total knee replacement.

Here are three things to know:

1. Dr. Redd will perform the procedure at Mountain View Hospital and Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, both in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

2. The patented OMNIBotics Bone Morphing technology eliminates the need for CT scans or MRIs and allows the surgeon to perform "virtual surgery" on a digital model. The surgeon can use a robotic cutting guide when making the planned bone resections for greater accuracy.

3. OMNIBotics is designed to allow surgeons to perform around less invasive surgical techniques compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.
