Since the creation of Lee Health’s robotics program last year, the health care system has more than tripled its number of daVinci robots, added a specialty neurosurgery robot and now, is announcing the addition of two robots for orthopedic procedures. The Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA Hip and Knee System, located at both Cape Coral Hospital and Lee Memorial Hospital, is a robotically-assisted surgical system designed to help perform total knee and hip replacement surgery. It includes features to assist with bone resections and assess the state of soft tissues in order to facilitate implant positioning intraoperatively. The system enables surgeons to use computer and software technology to control and move surgical instruments, allowing for greater precision and flexibility during procedures. The procedure is performed entirely by a surgeon who controls the system. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, patients generally experience less pain after surgery, have a quicker recovery and shorter length of stay in the hospital and need less medication.
