INOV8 Surgical Performs 1st Surgery using THINK Surgical’s Next-Generation Robot Technology for Knee Replacement

THINK Surgical, Inc., an innovator in the field of orthopedic active robot surgery, is pleased to announce that INOV8 Surgical is the first healthcare facility to utilize the second-generation TSolution One® Total Knee Application for total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Stefan Kreuzer, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, and the founder of INOV8 Orthopedics, performed the first procedure with the new system on August 24th at INOV8 Surgical Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in Houston, Texas.

THINK’s TSolution One system is the only robot system for TKA that supports an open implant library, giving surgeons the largest choice of implant options from different manufactures facilitating broad patient customization.

“My team and I are pleased to offer our patients the accuracy and reproducibility made possible in joint replacement procedures by THINK Surgical’s next-generation active robot,” said Dr. Kreuzer*. “Adoption of this advanced technology demonstrates our commitment to deliver exceptional outcomes for our patients.”

Dr. Kreuzer incorporated the first-generation TSolution One system into the INOV8 Surgical orthopedics program in early 2020, shortly after initial FDA clearance. INOV8 Surgical is a leading healthcare facility specializing in outpatient total joint procedures.

“We are very excited to have our latest robotic technology available to patients through the INOV8 Surgical ASC,” said Jay Yang, acting CEO and COO of THINK Surgical, Inc. “Our innovative engineers continue to advance robotic orthopedic surgery as demonstrated by our next-generation system and by future product launches.”

The TSolution One system consists of TPLAN®, a 3D pre-surgical planning workstation, and TCAT®, an active robot. Pre-surgical planning allows the surgeon to design and prepare the patient’s personalized joint replacement surgical plan in a virtual environment. The active robot aids the surgeon in executing the preoperative surgical plan with precise, automated cutting and removal of the diseased bone and cartilage. The TSolution One system assists surgeons with optimizing joint implant placement based on each patient’s unique anatomy.

The first full commercial launch was announced in 2020.
