Navio ™ Robotics


The NavioSurgical System provides robotic surgery assistance through an advanced computer program that relays precise information about your knee to the robotic tool to aid the surgeon during the procedure. By collecting patient-specific information, boundaries are established for the robotic hand piece so the surgeon can remove the damaged surfaces of your knee, balance your joint, and position the implant with great precision.  

Using this state of the art robot assisted surgery technology, the system works with the surgeon's skilled hands to achieve precise positioning of the knee implant for consistently accurate results.

This technology is available at Crouse Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital.
