Robotics - CORI
Linacre Private Hospital leads the way in cutting edge medical technology with the innovative CORI Surgical System, first brought to Australia in June 2021.
A small hand-held robotic surgical device, the CORI assists your Orthopaedic Surgeon with pinpoint accuracy and real-time imaging during knee operations – its scope includes partial and total knee reconstructions.
The CORI Surgical System increases the scope of Orthopaedic surgeries that can be performed at Linacre Private Hospital. Surgeries include:
- Total knee reconstruction (or Total Knee Arthroplasty – TKA)
- Partial knee replacement (or Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty – UKA)
What does this mean for you?
As a patient, you may benefit from:
- shorter surgery times
- less pain
- a more rapid recovery
- an earlier return to an active lifestyle
- improved knee mechanics post-surgery
The CORI mitigates the challenges of traditional methods of knee surgery and simplifies the surgical process without the extra steps required with existing robotic-assisted technology. For instance, you don’t need a CT scan – the device maps your knee in real-time.
