CHI St. Alexius Health purchases robot to assist in knee replacements
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Orthopedic surgeons aren’t the only ones in the operating room at CHI St. Alexius Health, robots are, too.
CHI St. Alexius Health purchased a robot to assist in total knee replacements.
The ROSA robot system is designed to help perform total knee replacement surgery.
The robot builds a virtual model of the patient's knee allowing the surgeon to operate with even more precision.
"This is really important for CHI to implement new technology because we never want to be behind the curve and new technology bringing the best surgery can offer to our patients," said Dr. Brian Dahl, The Bone and Joint Center.
The Bone and Joint Center surgeons are going through training and are planning to start using the robot within the next couple of weeks.
