  • ST. VINCENT CHARITY PHYSICIAN FIRST TO UTILIZE BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY FOR HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY
    May 02, 2017
    St. Vincent Charity Medical Center’s Dr. Bernard Stulberg recently became the first orthopedic surgeon in the nation to utilize the newly released TSolution One active robotic system to perform total hip replacement surgery. This revolutionary technology, which enables a surgeon-controlled robot to cut the bone to precise shape and position, is expected to increase the accuracy of hip implant placement and improve long-term outcomes for patients. With the TSolution One Surgical System, the only active robotic system cleared by the FDA for total hip replacement, surgeons create an exact 3-D computer model of the patient’s hip anatomy prior to surgery. After verifying the model, surgeons are able to develop a customized surgical plan, selecting the ideal implant size, fit and position for each individual patient. Once finalized, the pre-operative plan is transferred to the robotic system, where under the surgeon’s direct control, the bone cavities and joint surface are machined and positioned to sub-millimeter and less than one degree accuracy. read more
