Crestview, Florida (WKRGMore) — North Okaloosa Medical Center (NOMC) in Crestview has announced the introduction of a robot to assist joint replacement surgery.
Dr. Dean and his staff can use the robot with an arm to perform total knee, partial knee, and total hip replacements for greater precision and control.
said Mike Nordness, CEO of North Okaloosa Medical Center. This addition to our orthopedic service line further demonstrates our commitment to providing superior healthcare to our communities. ”
NOMC said the robot could reduce the risk of infection, shorten patient recovery time and help them get back on their feet faster.
“Robot-assisted surgery has been performed in other specialties at North Okaloosa Medical Center for many years, and we look forward to extending this expertise to joint replacement surgery,” said Nordness.
How the robot works:
“Using robotic-assisted technology virtually augments the surgeon’s eyes and hands. With this system, the surgeon sits at a console and performs surgery while viewing a 3D image of the surgical site. , which mimics the movements of a surgeon’s hand in real time and on a small scale, thus improving precision during surgery.Robots will not replace the surgeon, but they will increase their dexterity in navigating complex anatomy. It not only provides sharper detail, but also a 360-degree view of the surgical site.”
