Tulsa Bone and Joint First Surgery Center in Oklahoma to Offer Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement
Tulsa Bone and Joint’s Union Pines Surgery Center is the first non-hospital environment in the state to offer Mako SmartRobotics™. This advancement in joint replacement surgery improves the way total knee and partial knee replacements are performed by helping surgeons know more and cut less.
Tulsa Bone & Joint’s Union Pines Surgery Center is the first ambulatory surgery center in Oklahoma to offer this state-of-the-art technology. Several of the surgeons will utilize the technology, which includes CT-based planning and insightful data analytics in order to provide patients with an optimal joint replacement experience. The first two knee replacements using the technology were performed at Union Pines on Jan. 5.
“We are proud to be the first surgery center in our area to offer this highly advanced robotic technology,” said Dr. J. Scott Reid. “At Tulsa Bone and Joint, we strive to provide our patients access to cutting-edge technology. Our ultimate goal is to improve the patient experience at Tulsa Bone and Joint and Union Pines Surgery Center, and we believe this technology helps us achieve this goal.”
At Union Pines, patients can benefit from all of Tulsa Bone and Joint’s surgical expertise in a comfortable, outpatient setting. Joint replacements performed at Union Pines help patients avoid the hospital setting and are available at a lower cost than hospitals.
