Practice Management

Martin Roche, MD, a total joint specialist who performed the first sensor- and robotic-assisted knee surgery, was appointed director of hip and knee arthroplasty at Hospital for Special Surgery Florida in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Dr. Roche will work with John Wang, MD, part of HSS Florida's founding medical team, to expand the New York City-based group's orthopedic expertise to "Florida's active growing population," according to a Jan. 19 news release.

Dr. Roche joined Fort Lauderdale-based Holy Cross Hospital in 1996, where he served as director of the robotics program and director of the adult reconstruction fellowship.

He is founder of device company Orthosensor, which was acquired by Styrker on Jan. 5, and a clinical developer of the Mako robotic knee system.

"Under the highly skilled care of Drs. Roche and Wang at the state-of-the-art HSS Florida facility, we are creating an international center of excellence for hip and knee replacements," said Louis Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS.
