CORI robotics assisted knee surgery

Knee replacement operations using the CORI surgical system, which allows for greater accuracy and better results.

The CORI surgical system is a handheld robotic device that allows consultants to perform partial and total knee replacement surgery with greater accuracy and precision than is possible using traditional methods.

The CORI system helps your surgeon to create a detailed plan during the operation to ensure that the implant is positioned and aligned correctly for your individual anatomy. Your surgeon will always be in complete control.

At Circle Health Group, our consultant Orthopaedic surgeons use the CORI system because it offers patients better outcomes from knee replacement surgery. In particular, it can reduce recovery time, and lead to a more natural feeling knee in the long term.

Traditional knee replacement surgery is a highly successful operation that helps thousands of people each year to take control of their knee pain. The CORI system is an enhancement, which offers advantages including:

Greater precision and accuracy

During Surgery, your consultant will use the CORI surgical system to create a customised 3D digital model of your knee. This three-dimensional view helps them determine the right size of implant for you and create a tailored plan for how it will be placed during the operation. This is done according to your exact anatomy, making it as precise as possible.

As an added benefit, the 3D digital model eliminates the need for a CT scan of your knee before surgery.

During the procedure, your consultant will use the CORI surgical system to perform the procedure as they have planned it. The robotics will move as they move, combining innovative technology with the skill and expertise of a specialist orthopaedic consultant. The system sends information about your knee to the robotics-assisted handpiece more than 300 times per second, allowing your consultant to remove damaged parts of your knee joint, balance your joint, and fit the implant accurately.

With knee replacement surgery, precision and accuracy is key to achieving long-term function and movement. If an implant is positioned incorrectly, it can lead to joint instability and a deterioration in knee function. In combining the skills of our talented consultants with this surgical system, we can achieve new levels of precision and accuracy.

A tailored experience


Your knee replacement experience will be based on a unique plan tailored to your needs.

Through 3D digital technology, your consultant can fit your implant according to your exact anatomy. They will choose an implant that best meets your needs, including options that allow you to keep more of your natural bone and ligaments, which can help you regain function faster after surgery.

Durability and long-lasting results

Traditional knee replacements last for an average of 15 to 20 years.

Implants that are designed to be used with the CORI Surgical System are made with an exceptionally durable material called Oxinium Oxidized Zirconium, which has been shown to last significantly longer than traditional implants.

The precision and accuracy CORI robotics-assisted knee surgery offers also helps ensure long-lasting results beyond the traditional timeframe. The ability to fit the implant more accurately to your individual anatomy offers the best chance for a natural feeling knee and encourages better function and mobility long term.

A faster recovery journey


CORI robotics-assisted knee surgery also provides a smoother, faster recovery time. With optimised accuracy and precision, there is less chance of damage to the healthy tissues during surgery. So, there is less healing to be done, and your function and movement will improve faster than with traditional surgery.

A faster recovery time allows for a faster return to normal life and the activities you love.
