Stop Living With Knee Pain
Is living with knee pain really living? If you’re one of the estimated 30 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis, discover how knee replacement using CORI◊ Surgical System may help you return to the activities you love.
Our physicians use the CORI◊ Surgical System to perform robotics-assisted partial knee replacement. They chose this technology because it allows them to individualize each patient’s knee replacement surgery, and use robotic assistance for accurate results.
With the CORI◊ Surgical System, there is no special pre-operative preparation or post-operative recovery protocol. The CORI system does not perform the procedure. Rather, it assists the surgeon by providing accuracy – crucial to the success of the surgery.
- Lower Post Operative Pain
- Lower Risk of Complications
- Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
- Smaller Implants
- Less Removal of Bone and Cartilage
CORI◊ Surgical System
Meet the CORI◊ Surgical System robotics-assisted surgery: combining the advantages of traditional methods with innovations while minimizing the drawbacks to patients. This advanced technology is designed to help your surgeon plan and perform your knee replacement surgery with a greater degree of accuracy than is possible with traditional methods,4-8 and without the need for metal rods, CT scans, or pre-surgical MRIs. Smith+Nephew, the only company offering handheld robotics-assisted technology for partial and total knee replacements, believes this enhanced level of accuracy can give you a better long-term outcome.
Robotic Assisted Planning
Your surgeon uses the CORI system to create a customized 3D digital model of your knee. This three-dimensional view helps your surgeon finalize and verify the selection of your knee implant. During the procedure, the CORI system works in conjunction with your surgeon's skilled hands to achieve accurate positioning of the knee implant based on your unique anatomy. The result is a naturally shaped knee, made from materials designed to last longer, that is positioned with an added level of accuracy to allow for a quicker, smoother recovery.
Total Knee Replacements
In a total knee replacement, the entire knee joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant designed to replicate the shape, motion, and stability of your natural knee joint. Total knee replacement is one of the most common procedures performed in all of medicine, with over 600,000 performed in the U.S. every year. Ninety percent of people who receive a total knee replacement experience a dramatic decrease in knee pain, and an improvement in their ability to perform daily activities.

Partial Knee Replacements
In a partial knee replacement, your supporting tissue and ligaments that help stabilize your knee are spared and only the damaged portion of the knee is replaced. This means that healthy cartilage and bone remain intact to help your knee joint move smoothly with the prosthetic implant. Patients with osteoarthritis in only one area of their knee may be candidates for partial knee replacement. Patients who undergo partial knee replacement often report a 'more normal' feeling knee, less pain and quicker rehabilitation.
