Physicians Surgery Center in Jackson Obtains Second Robot for Orthopedic Surgery

The Physicians Surgery Center, a nationally accredited ambulatory surgery center in Jackson, now has a second robot that is used for total and partial knee replacement surgery.

Orthopedic Surgeons at West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic are using the CORI® robot, the latest technology for total and partial knee replacement surgeries. The Physicians Surgery Center became the first freestanding, ambulatory surgery center in Tennessee to offer robotic-assisted orthopedic surgery when Bone and Joint surgeons began using the NAVIO® robot in July 2018.

Since that time, Bone & Joint surgeons have performed over 1,200 robotic-assisted arthroplasties at their combined locations in Jackson and Paris.

Both the CORI and NAVIO robots were developed by Smith & Nephew. CORI, introduced in July at the Physicians Surgery Center, continues to allow the surgeons to create individualized plans for knee replacement procedures and precisely align implants.

Meanwhile, orthopedic surgeons at West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic Paris use the Stryker Mako robotic system.

“Robotic-assisted total and partial knee arthroplasty treatments can minimize pain and improve early functional recovery by allowing surgeons to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan,” said Donna W. Klutts, CEO/Administrative Director of Physicians Surgery Center. “This is a breakthrough technology for our many patients who face knee replacement surgery.”
