Fremont, Calif.-based Think Surgical received FDA clearance for its TSolution One Total Knee Application, according to a Nov. 20 press release.

The system features an active robot for total knee replacements, offering automated bone preparation and giving surgeons implant options, the release said. It upgrades Think Surgical's current system.

The clearance comes one year after the first-generation active robot was cleared, the release said.

"The ongoing evolution of the TSolution One Total Knee Application is a testament to THINK Surgical's dedication and investment in advancing the use of robot technology in the orthopedic setting," Jay Yang, acting CEO of Think Surgical, said in the statement. "The versatile, open platform provides surgeons with the flexibility of using a variety of implants, while offering hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers a sustainable, high throughput system for their ever-increasing total knee replacement procedures."
