Dr. Knutson performed his 200th Robotic Assisted Total Knee replacement surgery this week using the OMNIBotics platform. The picture shows Dr. Knutson (left) and his PA Beau Burton (right) standing with ‘Sheldon’ the OMNIBotics station that Dr. Knutson uses in the operating room. Dr. Knutson knows that all of his patients have a unique knee anatomy. He believes in the patented OMNIBotics Bone Morphing technology that generates a unique 3D digital model of his patient’s knee in the surgery, with a high level of accuracy and precision. Using this technology eliminates the need for any pre-operative imaging such as CT scans or MRIs, reducing the risk of radiation exposure.

The chilly April morning didn’t stop the crowd of people at the start line supporting Cody’s Run for Esophageal Cancer.
This year our Habakkuk Family was at the run in full spirit, bringing along spouses and children. Cody’s Run is near to our hearts, as we participate in support of one of our surgeons whose brother lost his fight with Esophageal Cancer in 2013.
Cody’s Run is a 5K dedicated to helping the Stephenson Cancer Center and Oklahoma Cancer Patients. All proceeds from the run go directly to the Cody Ponder Emergency Endowment Fund.
Habakkuk is proud to show our support!
