Brunswick Surgery Center recently added two robot-assisted systems for patients undergoing joint replacement surgery.
The center, which opened in Leland last year as the region’s first outpatient orthopedic surgery center, has invested in the ROSA Knee system and the Mako SmartRobotics system, according to a press release.
EmergeOrtho opened the Brunswick Surgery Center in the villages of Brunswick County. Seven EmergeOrtho surgeons are certified to perform robotic knee replacement surgery.
Both systems can be used at the center for total knee replacements now and for partial knee and hip replacements in the near future, officials said.
“The systems combine the expertise and experience of the surgeon with real-time computer-generated data during surgery, allowing greater precision and accuracy,” the statement said.
“In clinical studies, robotic systems have shown the potential for patients to experience less pain, less need for opioid analgesics, less need for physiotherapy, better knee flexion, and soft tissue protection compared to manual techniques.
Brunswick Surgery Center will be hosting a series of open house educational seminars from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 7, October 21, November 4 and November 18, the first of which will focus on its outpatient robotic knee replacement program. .
