Oswego (N.Y.) Health added Smith & Nephew's Navio robotic surgical system to assist surgeons with partial and total knee replacements, reports Local SYR.

Three things to know:

1. Navio uses CT-free intraoperative registration, planning and navigation to help surgeons develop patient-specific surgical plans.

2. The technology enables surgeons to create a 3D model of the knee on the computer, which helps predict the procedure before making a cut on the bone.

3. Orthopedic surgeons will perform procedures with the Navio robot at Oswego Health's new Center for Orthopedic Care at Fulton (N.Y.) Medical Center.
