Knee Anatomy 101

The knee is the largest joint in the body, uniting the thigh with the rest of the leg. It is a system of moving parts consisting of cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The knee is also a hinge that provides the human body with the strength to run, squat, jump, and turn.

Common Concerns

However, it is vulnerable to a number of injuries and conditions because of its inability to rotate in every direction. Common knee injuries include: torn ACL, torn meniscus, fractured or dislocated patella (knee cap), ligament injury, and torn tendons.

ROSA® Robotic Surgical Assistant for Knee Replacements ROSA® Robotic Surgical Assistant For Knee Replacements 

We are proud to offer ROSA® Knee robotic technology from Zimmer Biotmet. ROSA, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, is designed to help your specially-trained surgeon tailor the placement of your knee implant just for you. The surgical procedure using ROSA Knee is similar to traditional total knee replacement, but with a robotic assistant. Your surgeon has been specially trained to use ROSA Knee in order to personalize the surgical approach for your unique anatomy.

Getting a precise knee implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following knee replacement surgery. ROSA Knee uses data collected before and during surgery to inform your surgeon of many details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit. By using this data to make more informed decisions, your surgeon is able to plan for and carry out a personalized surgery based upon your individual needs. Learn more about ROSA!
