OMNIlife science exceeds 17k total knee replacements using OMNIBotics: 5 notes

Written by Mackenzie Garrity | October 06, 2017 | Print  |

Surgeons have performed more than 17,000 total knee replacements using OMNIlife sciences' OMNIBotics system.

Here are five notes:

 

1. The OMNIBotics system is designed to give surgeons optimal implant placement using robotics driven by OMNI's proprietary ART software.

 

2. Surgeons can use an intra-operative 3-D modeling technique that eliminates the need for preoperative CT scans or X-rays, thereby allowing surgeons to efficiently plan procedures specific to each patient.

 

3. Ronald LaButti, DO, of Advanced Orthopedics of Oklahoma in Tulsa, has performed more than 1,500 total knee replacements using OMNIBotics. He said, "OMNIBotics' patient specific procedure enables my patients to recover more quickly and results in excellent clinical outcomes as well as very satisfied

patients."

 

4. Market researchers estimate surgeons will perform more than 20 percent of total knee replacement procedures using robotic assistance within in the next five years.

 

5. OMNIBotics launched in 2010. Recently, OMNIlife received FDA clearance for Active Spacer, a tool that allows physicians to manage the tension of ligaments and pressure in knee joints. The company plans to integrate Active Space into its OMNIBotics platform.
