WAUKESHA óOrthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin announced Monday it is the first surgery center in the state to implement CT-free Robotic orthopedic surgery.

Based in Waukesha, OAW has completed more than 30 procedures with the Navio orthopedic surgical system to help surgeons perform precise and accurate partial knee replacement surgeries. The Navio Surgical System provides robotic assistance through an advanced computer program that relays precise information about the patientís knee to a robotic tool to aid the surgeon during partial knee replacement surgery. By collecting patient-specific information, boundaries are established for the robotic handpiece allowing the surgeon can remove the damaged surfaces of the patientís knee, balance their joint, and position the implant with great precision.
