200th OMNIBotics Total Knee Replacement

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.
