Newport Hospital now has a tool that will help further improve outcomes for patients undergoing knee replacement surgery.
The ROSA Robot allows doctors to make a smaller incision, with reduced scarring and minimal bleeding; reduced injury to nearby tissue; more precise implant placement; and increased longevity of the implant.
University Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Valentin Antoci – who heads up Newport Hospital’s total joint program – and Dr. Mouhanad El Othmani hit the airwaves onf 1540 WADK Newport to discuss why the ROSA is great news for the people of Aquidneck Island.
