Irvine, Calif.-based Hoag Orthopedic Institute has added two total joint replacement robots at its ASCs, the hospital said Aug. 15.
Hoag Orthopedic’s surgery center in Mission Viejo, Calif., added the Rosa knee robot, and its ASC in Orange, Calif., added a Corin OMNIBiotics system, Hoag stated in a news release. The new additions bring Hoag’s total to four knee replacement robots at its facilities.
“Robots in general don’t make a surgeon better, but the next-generation robotic devices have the potential to augment a good surgeon’s skill,” Nader Nassif, MD, Hoag Orthopedic Institute’s division chief of joint replacement, said in the news release.
Another robot is slated to be included later this year at Hoag’s upcoming surgery center in Aliso Viejo, Calif.
