June 23, 2020 Ithaca, New York –– Cayuga Health will be offering a FREE live knee pain Zoom seminar on July 8th from 6:00 -7:30 pm. Medical Director and Cayuga Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Diedre Blake will discuss what causes knee pain, treatment options and how robotics assisted NAVIO Surgical System can be life changing.Cayuga Health added the cutting edge NAVIO Surgical System to its growing portfolio of patient offerings in March, 2019. The NAVIO Surgical System provides the latest robotics assistance to surgeons with accurate and flexible real-time imaging. The NAVIO System was developed by Smith & Nephew, a medical technology company headquartered in the United Kingdom.
“My experience with the NAVIO Surgical System has been phenomenal,” states Dr. Blake. “It allows me more freedom as a surgeon, because it is imageless. I can easily plan and correct for significant deformities and retained hardware with confidence. The direct interface with the system itself puts me in control, and ultimately improves the outcome for our patients.”
Navio’s real-time imaging simplifies the surgical process for patients and enables office staff to focus on patient care by eliminating the need to spend time managing payer approvals for preoperative imaging. In addition, NAVIO can be easily moved from operating room to operating room to support the demand for efficiency needed by expanding orthopedic programs.
