New York hospital adds ROSA knee


Rochester (N.Y.) Regional Health installed Zimmer Biomet's Rosa Knee, local affiliate WHAM reported May 14.

The robot creates a virtual 3D model of a patient's knee. For one patient, the technology helped him recover from a joint replacement surgery faster.

"We're able to optimize the patient's knee range of motion and also just how that knee moves, meaning how their ligaments are balanced, how tight or loose that knee is — we are really trying to get a sweet spot," Colin Canham, MD, medical director of the joint replacement center told the station.
