Our robot – the “CORI” – is a handheld device that works in conjunction with your surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve accurate positioning of components during planning and surgery. With 3D digital modeling, you get a surgical plan that’s customized to your unique anatomy. That means you have a quicker recovery and get back to the life you had before living with joint pain.
