Restore movement and reclaim your busy lifestyle

Same-day, advanced robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery

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.

Medical Director, Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Chicago

Henry A. Finn, MD, FACS, is internationally recognized for his skill in hip and knee replacement surgery. With more than 35 years of experience in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Finn specializes in adult reconstructive surgery and has led approximately 15,000 surgical procedures. He is also a leader in devising and applying the latest techniques, including contemporary minimally invasive and rapid-recovery approaches, advanced analgesic techniques, cosmetic wound closure, partial knee replacement, total knee replacement and total hip replacement.

 

Yasser Farid, MD, PhD

Surgeon, Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Assistant Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics, University of Illinois at Chicago

Yasser Farid, MD, PhD, is a board-certified, well-recognized hip and knee replacement expert in Chicago with more than 25 years of experience in orthopedics. He specializes in the treatment of painful and arthritic conditions of the hip and knee utilizing computer navigation, anterior and minimally-invasive total hip arthroplasty, and robotically-assisted partial and total knee replacement. Dr. Farid has published several articles and surgical techniques in joint replacement and focuses on optimizing outcomes and patient satisfaction after hip and knee replacement.

Advanced Robotic-Assisted Surgical Technology

Robotics-assisted knee replacement surgery using the CORI Surgical System and combined with the features and benefits of Smith + Nephew’s implant portfolio can lead to the following patient benefits:

    • Quicker, smoother recovery1
    • Regain function faster and return home sooner2
    • A unique plan: We use 3D digital modeling to get a surgical plan customized to the patient's unique anatomy. This means our surgeons can perform the procedure more efficiently and accurately than traditional knee replacement surgery.
    • A natural fit: Using this technology, patients can keep more of their natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL. That helps maintain more of a natural rhythm and step.
    • A wide selection: Our surgeons are able to choose from the widest selection of implants available, so implants can be precision-matched to feel more like a patient’s own knee.

The surgeons at the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery utilize innovative robotics technologies from Smith + Nephew for partial knee replacements, total knee replacements and total hip replacements.

Partial and Total Knee Replacements

The CORI Surgical System is an advanced and efficient hand-held, robotic-assisted surgery platform that adds an extra layer of pre-surgical planning and improved precision for partial and total knee replacement procedures.

The CORI system allows surgeons to create a customized 3D digital model of each patient’s knee that is used to determine where the implant should be placed and designed to provide the optimal function to the patient and the potential for a faster recovery.1

CORI’s 3-D technology also eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming pre-surgical CT scans and/or MRIs, saving time, imaging costs, and unnecessary exposure to harmful radiation experienced with this type of imaging.

Total Hip Replacements

For total hip replacement procedures, the RI.HIP robotic-assisted surgery system assists in proper placement of hip implants, as well as leg length evaluation without the use of fluoroscopic x-ray. This saves time and minimizes potential contamination and eliminates radiation exposure.

RI.HIP NAVIGATION empowers your surgeon with a digital tool to assess how your unique anatomy will help determine the optimal positioning of your new implant.

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.
