SMH Unveils the ROSA Knee Robot

Coconut Telegraph

Sarasota Memorial Hospital (SMH) welcomed a new member to its orthopedic surgery team today: ROSA the knee robot. ROSA, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, adds another layer of technical expertise to the health system’s growing robotics program. With ROSA by their side, SMH’s leading orthopedic surgeons Edward Stolarski, MD, and Sean Dingle, MD, performed two robotic total knee-replacement cases and were working on a third in separate procedures. Using ROSA’s computerized algorithm, the patients received a new, precisely formulated and placed joint designed to promote natural joint movement and eliminate their grinding bone-on-bone pain. The ROSA knee robot won FDA clearance in January and has since been acquired by about 30 hospitals with high-volume orthopedic programs in the United States. Sarasota Memorial’s orthopedic surgery team is the second in Florida to complete training and begin using ROSA in the operating room.
