Experience The Blessing Difference: The ROSA® Knee System
Your body’s anatomy is unique to you. That’s why Blessing Health System is proud to offer Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA Knee System. This robotic technology allows our surgeons to personalize surgical knee implant procedures for their patients. With data to help with complex decision making, ROSA enables our surgical team the ability for greater precision and flexibility during procedures.
The surgical procedure using ROSA is similar to a traditional total knee replacement, but includes the help of a robotic assistant. Before surgery, the ROSA Knee System takes a series of x-rays to create a 3-D model of your knee’s anatomy to help in planning. During the procedure, the ROSA Knee System uses a camera and trackers attached to your leg to know where your knee is. The trackers help with motion and adjust accordingly, ensuring the surgery plan stays as intended.
Advantages of the ROSA® Knee System
Being a minimally invasive approach, the ROSA® knee system offers the following benefits:
- Precise placement of the implant
- Reduced injury to adjacent tissues
- Increased longevity of the implant
Risks and Complications
The ROSA® Knee System is a relatively safe procedure; however, as with any knee replacement surgery, there are risks and complications that can occur, such as:
- Damage to surrounding soft tissues
- Stiffness or instability in the knee
