The ROSA® knee robot – now helping surgeons at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Wirral

07 December 2022

ROSA® (RObotic Surgical Assistant) is a new cutting-edge robotic technology helping to support your surgeon at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Wirral to target better fit and function than ever before.

Knee replacement surgery involves removing damaged parts of a knee joint and replacing them with an artificial joint. As every patient’s anatomy is unique, the exact positioning of the implant varies from person-to-person.

ROSA® Knee uses 3D data collected about an individual patient’s knee, to inform the orthopaedic surgeon of many details related to the patient’s individual anatomy. By using this data, the surgeon can plan and perform personalised bone cuts and implant fit to better suit an individual patient’s needs. The robot does not perform the surgery, but assists surgeons with live data and guidance throughout the procedure, only moving if the surgeon tells it to.
