Riverview Health launches CORI Surgical System

September 15, 2023

Noblesville—Riverview Health recently upgraded its robotics-assisted knee surgery offerings to include the CORI Surgical System. 

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons estimates knee replacement surgeries are expected to increase a staggering 180% between now and 2030 in United States.

 To ensure that patients in Hamilton County who are at risk for osteoarthritis and may need surgical intervention are receiving the best care possible, Riverview Health continually introduces the latest technology to the operating room.  

 A recent survey conducted by global implant maker, Smith+Nephew and Kantar showed procedure fears and recovery time were the biggest concerns patients had about moving forward, but they expressed near unanimous interest in discussing robotics-assisted knee surgery with their physician.  

 Robotics-assisted knee replacement surgery using the CORITM Surgical System combined with the features and benefits of Smith+Nephew’s implant portfolio can lead to the following patient benefits including a quicker, smoother recovery, regaining function faster and returning home sooner. 

 "If you are suffering from arthritic knee pain, CORI robotic surgery has become a game-changer, said Norman Mindrebo, MD, orthopedic surgeon at Riverview Health. “Robotic knee replacement surgery has become easier, quicker and better for the patient and the OR team. Bone preservation is now possible and functional results are much improved. We can now match the knee to the patient in ways that were not possible even five years ago.” 

 The platform uses 3D digital modeling to get a surgical plan customized to the patient’s unique anatomy. The surgeon can then perform the procedure more accurately than traditional knee replacement surgery. Using these technologies, patients can keep more of their natural bone and ligaments, which helps maintain a more natural rhythm and step.  

 “At Riverview Health we believe that providing our already excellent providers with the latest tools and technology allows us to deliver unparalleled care for our patients,” said Dave Hyatt, president & CEO of Riverview Health. “Our new orthopedic surgery robots are a prime example of investing in technology that will help get our patients out of the hospital faster and have a smoother recovery. We put patients at the center of every decision we make, any investment in providing better patient care is a great investment.” 





Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure including CORI-enabled Knee Replacement. The CORI Surgical System is not for everyone. Children, pregnant women, patients who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of the knee joint, and morbidly obese patients and patients contraindicated for UKR, PFA and TKA should not undergo a CORI procedure. Consult your physician for details to determine if surgery using the CORI Surgical System is right for you.
