Smith+Nephew launches knee replacement robot in Japan

Robotics

Smith+Nephew launched its Cori surgical robot for knee replacements in Japan, the devicemaker said Feb. 21.

The launch builds on the growing adoption of Smith+Nephew's surgical robots in Japan, according to a news release. In 2019, Japan adopted Smith+Nephew's Navio robot for knee replacements.

Cori uses 3D intraoperative imaging and a robotic milling tool to sculpt bone and preserve a patient's anatomy. It digitally automates measurements and surgical plans for each patient, the release said.
