Livonia, Mich.-based Trinity Health's Brent Knudson, DO, completed the region's first total knee replacement with Zimmer Biomet's Rosa Knee Jan. 11, the Minot Daily News reports.

Rosa Knee features 3D preoperative planning tools and intraoperative data on soft tissue and bone anatomy to improve bone cut accuracy and range of motion gap analysis.

The system collects data to help surgeons make more informed decisions on patient care.

Trinity Health patients can choose whether the robot will be used for their surgery, according to the report. There is no additional cost to those who opt to use the technology.
