The latest robotic technology that helps surgeons perform a more precise knee replacement surgery that is tailored to each patient with the goal to get patients back to life faster is now available in Orthopaedics. The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution is a newly released robotic technology that helps surgeons perform knee replacement using data tailored to each patient’s anatomy. It has been utilized at CRMC since September, almost immediately after coming to market.
The technology is designed to help ensure more predictable results, enabling orthopaedic surgeons the ability to improve outcomes and increase patients’ mobility, all while allowing them to recover faster. A news article about the new technology featuring Orthopaedic Surgeon Erik Severson, M.D., will soon be published in the Brainerd Dispatch.
