Growth in outpatient procedures necessitates added technology

In response to continual growth in outpatient surgical activity, Jewett Orthopaedic & the Physicians’ Surgical Care Center (PSCC) has become the first outpatient center in Florida to introduce robotic orthopaedic surgery into the outpatient environment. The organization began incorporating the Mako® robotic-arm assisted technology into outpatient procedures at PSCC in July of 2016.

Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic has long been an innovator. Its total & partial joint replacement program at the Physicians Surgical Care Center, has led to higher quality, lower costs and a streamlined approach to orthopaedic healthcare: a bundled payment that simplifies the process of surgery and recovery.

Since installing the robotic system, surgeons have used it to perform hundreds of procedures in the Physician Surgical Care Center. The robotic-arm assisted technology that provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. A 3D model of your hip or knee will be used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing total hip replacement or partial knee replacement.

“Robotics is the leading edge of surgical innovation and being able to move this technology into the outpatient surgical setting is fantastic,” added Dr. McFadden of Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic. “The most important feature is the extreme accuracy & quick recovery. Every patient at PSCC patient goes home the very same day.”
