ROSA Robotic Knee Surgery

Q: What does ROSA stand for?

A: Robotic Surgical Assistant


Q: How do I know if I’m a candidate for a ROSA Knee surgery?

A: Provider to create their own response.


Q: Will a ROSA Knee surgery take longer than a non-robotic assisted surgery?

A: Provider to create their own response.  


Q: How does ROSA work?

A: During your procedure, ROSA Knee utilizes a camera and optical trackers attached to your leg to know exactly where your knee is in space. Think of it like a very detailed global positioning system (GPS) that you might use in your car. If your leg moves even a fraction of an inch, the robot can tell and adjusts accordingly. This helps ensure that the plan your surgeon put into place is executed as intended. Throughout your surgery, ROSA Knee provides your surgeon with data about your knee. This information, combined with your surgeon’s skill, helps them know how to position your implant based on your unique anatomy.


Q: How does this process personalize my knee surgery?

A: Your preoperative experience will be like that of most total knee patients. But, unlike traditional knee replacement methods, with ROSA Knee, a series of x-rays may be used to create a three-dimensional (3D) model of your knee anatomy. This 3D model will enable the surgeon to plan many specifics of your knee replacement prior to your surgery.


Q: Does this ROSA Knee surgery cost more than a non-assisted surgery?

A: HCP or Hospital will need to answer this as it varies among providers.
