OMNIBotics robotic-assisted total knee replacement introduced at Seaside
NAPLES, Fla. (October 15, 2019)– Dr. H. Kurtis Biggs became the first orthopaedic surgeon from Tampa to Miami to offer OMNIBotics, an advanced robotic-assisted treatment option for total knee replacements, when he conducted the inaugural outpatient procedure at Seaside Surgery Center on October 15, 2019. He is also one of the first surgeons in the country to perform this innovative total knee solution, designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Dr. Biggs has exclusive rights in this region to perform the procedure.
The OMNIBotics® technology utilizes advanced software and instrumentation to tailor each procedure to the patient’s unique anatomy in order to optimize the implant fit and alignment. Patented OMNIBotics Bone Morphing ™ technology eliminates the need for costly pre-operative CT scans or MRIs and allows Dr. Biggs to perform “virtual” surgery on a digital model before any bone is cut. He uses a robotic cutting guide to make the planned bone resections, helping to ensure accuracy. This has not been possible with previous robotic-assisted knee replacement surgeries.
Dr. Biggs maintains control and decision-making regarding the total knee replacement while providing customized, patient-specific surgery. A global leader in robotic-assisted total knee replacement, OMNIBotics allows for a less invasive surgical technique than traditional knee replacement surgery, which promotes a quicker recovery.
“I’m thrilled to be the first surgeon in the region utilizing OMNIBotics, and bringing this cutting edge technology to my patients,” said Dr. Biggs. “As a surgeon, my goal is to provide them with the best treatment options available to help resolve pain, restore mobility from knee osteoarthritis and help them return to their active lifestyles. The new OMNIBotics technology allows me to achieve the best possible outcome for them through its unparalleled level of precision and accuracy compared to other traditional methods. The customized approach enables optimal leg alignment for improved joint function and a more natural feel.”
Dr. Biggs is performing OMNIBotics total knee replacement procedures at Seaside Surgery Center, where he is one of the founding surgeons. Dr. Biggs will be offering lectures on this new technology through mid-December, 2019. Please call 239-261-2663 for more information or to schedule a consultation.
