Emanuel Medical Center Acquires New Technology for Knee Replacement SurgeryJun 21, 2022
Turlock, Calif. – Emanuel Medical Center has acquired and is now offering the CORI Surgical System, advanced technology for partial and total knee replacement surgery. There are fewer than ten facilities in California to offer this technology, with the nearest to Emanuel being in San Francisco.
The CORI Surgical System is a robotic-assisted platform that allows the surgeon to create a custom surgical plan for each patient and helps ensure that each procedure is performed exactly as the surgeon intends. The system’s real-time planning also eliminates the need to undergo a preoperative CT scan, reducing the patient’s exposure to potentially harmful radiation.
“We are thrilled to offer this technology to our knee replacement patients at Emanuel,” said Murali Naidu, M.D., CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. “Within the last few years, we’ve seen great advancements in robotic-assisted knee surgery that can be a game changer for patients with joint pain.”
With this new system, surgeons use 3D digital modeling to create a surgical plan customized to the patient’s unique anatomy. This means surgeons can perform the procedure more accurately than traditional knee replacement surgery. Using these technologies, patients can keep more of their natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL. That helps maintain more of a natural rhythm and step.
Benefits for patients who receive robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery with the CORI Surgical System may include a quicker, smoother recovery and the ability to regain knee function faster.
Emanuel Medical Center encourages patients to speak with their orthopedic surgeon to see if the CORI Surgical System is the right fit for them. To find a physician near you, click here.
The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons estimates knee replacement surgeries are expected to increase a staggering 180% between now and 2030 in the United States as individuals seek to maintain healthy and active lifestyles deeper into their golden years.
