Cleveland-based St. Vincent Charity Medical Center performed the first case in Ohio using Think Surgical's second-generation TSolution One robot for total knee replacements.
Bernard Stulberg, MD, performed the first procedure Aug. 27, according to a Sept. 16 news release. The first generation of TSolution One was implemented in August 2020.
"One of the major benefits of the TSolution One system is that it gives surgeons the ability to customize every patient's procedure more than ever before," Dr. Stulberg said. "While other robotic-assisted devices on the market only work with implants from a single manufacturer, this system allows surgeons to select implants from a variety of manufacturers depending on the individual needs of each patient. The accuracy provided by the robot while preparing the bone for the joint implant helps to ensure precise implant placement, which may improve patient mobility and longevity of the construct."
The second-generation TSolution One also debuted in Texas at Houston-based INOV8 Orthopedics in August.
