Backed by the power of state-of-the-art robotic-assisted technology, the experienced orthopedic surgeons of the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery can help you reclaim a pain-free and active lifestyle sooner than you thought possible.

Our same-day joint replacement program focuses on getting patients up and moving as quickly as possible after surgery. Robotic-assisted surgery allows for smaller incisions and less soft tissue injuries that assists in pain reduction and rapid recovery.

Comprehensive spine health management with minimally invasive and robotic surgery

When conservative options such as medications, injections and physical therapy fail to manage your back, neck or spine pain, the highly skilled orthopedic spine surgeons of the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery employ the latest robotic guidance technology to optimize your procedure and enhance your recovery. Our goal is to help you experience less pain and regain your active lifestyle as soon as possible.

Advanced Robotic-Assisted Surgical Technology for Joint Replacement

At the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery, we utilize the ROSA® Knee System from Zimmer Biomet for a customized surgical approach to each patient’s knee replacement. ROSA, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, is designed to help our specially trained orthopedic surgeons tailor the placement of each patient’s knee implant. The ROSA Knee System uses data collected before and during surgery to inform the surgeon of the many details related to each patient’s unique anatomy that may affect the fit of the implant. By using this data to make more informed decisions, the surgeon is able to plan for and carry out a personalized surgery based upon individual needs.

Using the ROSA® Knee System for total knee replacement can lead to the following patient benefits:

  • Patients can potentially save money on their ROSA robotic surgery as the system does not require the use of CT scans1
  • Less exposure to radiation2
  • Increased accuracy compared to traditional knee replacement3-4
  • Better implant positioning, which can result in a more natural-feeling knee after surgery5
  • Potential for better long-term satisfaction and outcomes6

Advanced Robotic Technology for Spine Procedures

Our experienced orthopedic spine surgeons employ the latest surgical techniques with the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform for Spine Surgery. The Mazor X surgical robotic guidance technology from Medtronic allows our surgeons to visualize their patients’ anatomy, pre-plan their surgery in 3D, and then use robotic guidance to execute their procedure. Our experts utilize the Mazor X SE robot to perform traditional and minimally invasive surgeries, including (but not limited to):

  • Posterior spinal fusions (minimally invasive and traditional)
  • Posterior lumbar interbody fusions
  • Minimally Invasive (MIS) direct lateral interbody fusions
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusions
  • Prone lateral interbody fusions
  • Spinal deformity

A Multidisciplinary Team
for Individualized Care

At the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery an orthopedic navigator manages the care of each patient, including pre-admission screening and education, arranging pre/post-acute rehabilitation needs and post-surgical follow up. The navigator is part of a multidisciplinary team of clinical experts, including skilled nurses, physical therapists, and pain specialists all focused on getting you home as safely and quickly as possible. From pre-operative education and pain management to orthopedic rehabilitation and recovery, our outpatient surgical team will guide you every step of the way.

Who is a Candidate for Same-Day Surgery?

Patients qualify for same-day knee or hip joint replacement surgery based on their age, medical conditions, overall health, home support, motivation and ability to receive home health therapy. A healthcare partner—typically a family member or friend—must be available for all visits to the surgeon, present during the hospital stay, and at home with you for at least five days after surgery. An in-home physical /occupational therapy evaluation will also be required. Based on all of these factors, you, your partner, and your surgeon will decide if you are a candidate to go home on the same day of your surgery, or the next day.
