Think Surgical, an innovative company that develops Surgical Robots, has proudly announced that INOV8 Surgical, a healthcare facility, has completed its total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using Think Surgical’s second-generation TSolution One® Total Knee Application.
TSolution by THINK One system is the only TKA robot system that supports an open implant placement, giving surgeons the most implant options from various manufacturers and facilitating broad patient customization. Stefan Kreuzer, M.D., an Orthopedic surgeon and the founder of INOV8 Orthopedics, performed the surgery with the knee application on August 24th at INOV8 Surgical Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in Houston.
The TSolution One machine includes TPLAN®, a three-dimensional pre-surgical planning Workstation, and TCAT®, an active robotic assistant. In a virtual environment, pre-surgical planning allows the health care professional to design and put together the patient’s personalized joint alternative surgical plan.
The animated robot assists the general practitioner in carrying out the preoperative surgical plan, including automatic cutting and removal of diseased bone and cartilage. The TSolution One device assists surgeons in optimizing joint implant placement based entirely on each patient’s unique anatomy.
Dr. Kreuzer and his team are excited to offer their patients the accuracy and reproducibility enabled by THINK Surgical’s next-generation active robot in joint replacement procedures. He added that adopting advanced technology demonstrates their commitment to providing exceptional outcomes for their patients.
THINK Surgical, Inc’s Acting CEO and COO Jay Yang stated that they are very excited to have their latest robotic technology available to patients through the INOV8 Surgical ASC.
The global Surgical Robots market appears to grow from USD 6.4 billion in 2021 to USD 14.4 billion by 2026. VR-enabled Surgical Robots designed by CEO Adam Sachs and co-founders Sammy Khalifa and Dr. Barry Greene, which can perform complex surgeries with minimal incision, appear to hit the market by 2023.
Dr. Kreuzer integrated the first-generation TSolution One system into the INOV8 Surgical orthopedics program in early 2020, shortly after receiving initial FDA clearance. INOV8 Surgical is a premier healthcare facility that specializes in outpatient total joint replacement procedures.
