Big data and analytics will drive patient outcomes in a big way, and the coming years will witness a growing emphasis on healthcare service providers in the business of gathering and processing patient health data.

Surgery One announced today the addition of a NAVIO™ orthopedic surgical system to help surgeons perform precise and accurate partial and total knee replacement surgeries using the ZUK and JOURNEY CR implants from global medical device maker Smith & Nephew. This technology for knee replacements uses a CT-free intra-operative registration, planning and navigation platform to assist the surgeon in building patient-specific surgical plans. NAVIO robotics assists the surgeon in preparing the bone with the precision of robotics in a freehand sculpting technique.

“Dr. David Fabi is one of the earliest adopters and pioneers of Robotic Joint Replacement, said Surgery One CEO, Scott Leggett, “On a global level, he is one of the acknowledged experts in the field of Robotic Joint Replacement.” Worldwide, Dr. Fabi has performed more NAVIO total joint procedures than any other Surgeon.

With no pre-operative CT-scan required, NAVIO patients receive the benefits of robotic assistance without additional time spent for pre-operative procedures. Instead, the surgeon collects anatomical data during the procedure to build a 3D model of the patient’s knee. This information helps the surgeon place the implant and balance the knee’s ligaments for optimal alignment and a well-balanced knee.

Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Fabi said, “Patients who seek todays most advanced and innovative surgical technology can now receive knee replacement that is as close to a real knee as possible.”  “The Robotic Assisted Surgical Technology allows customized placement of the joint with increased accuracy and precision,” concluded Fabi.

The Robotic Assisted Surgical Technology is now available in Southern California in the Outpatient setting at Surgery One’s ambulatory surgery centers.
