Comprehensive Care for Orthopedic Conditions and Injuries

Orthopaedic surgeons at St. Mary’s Physician Associates treat patients who have experienced traumatic injuries to their bones, have disturbances in joints or have inflammation of muscle or connective tissues. Surgeons use medical treatment and surgical solutions for a number of conditions, including:

  • Accident-related and other traumatic injuries
  • Arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (pinched nerve in wrist)
  • Congenital (inherited) hand injuries and deformities
  • Upper extremity pain problems
  • Rotator cuff (shoulder area) disorders and injuries
  • Hips and knees that require joint replacement surgery
  • Fractures, dislocations, instability of bones and joints

ROSA® Robotic Knee Replacement System

ROSA® knee robotic technology is a tool designed to help a specially trained surgeon tailor the placement of the knee implant in patients who need a total knee replacement. The ROSA® system uses data that is collected before and during surgery to let the surgeon know the details of the patient’s anatomy. Prior to surgery, patients will have a series of X-rays performed, which are used to create a 3D model of their knee. During surgery, the system uses a camera and trackers to help ensure the pre-op plan is performed as intended. It provides the surgeon with data needed to know how to position the implant based on each individual patient’s anatomy. This can allow for greater surgical precision placing the implants, which can lead to improved patient outcomes.

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery is right for you.
