Our specially-trained orthopedic physicians are now performing robotic-assisted surgery for total knee replacements.

“I am very excited to be part of the next evolution of knee replacement for improved patient outcomes and satisfaction,” said Lawrence Yenni, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, who performed the first case on March 9.

Robotic surgery, or robotic-assisted surgery - allows surgeons the ability to perform complex procedures with added precision, flexibility and control than with many conventional techniques. Patients may benefit from less pain, faster recovery times, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, smaller incisions and less noticeable scars. 

“It’s not always easy for patients to decide to have joint replacement surgery. We are pleased to have this new technology at the fingertips of our orthopedic surgeons, to help our patients feel at ease when making that decision,” said Mark Holyoak, CEO of Wilson Medical Center. “This is just another way we are advancing our mission of Making Communities Healthier. “
