Smith and Nephew launches new robotics-assisted knee replacement solution

15th November 2017

Smith and Nephew has announced the launch of its groundbreaking new Journey II XR bi-cruciate retaining total knee system, with the first implants having already taken place.

Designed as the world's first robotics-assisted bi-cruciate retaining total knee replacement system, the new device allows retention of the anterior cruciate ligament and can offer greater patient satisfaction.

It has been optimised for delivery via the Navio robotics-assisted surgical system, ensuring the accuracy of tibial component placement and a streamlined surgical technique, without any need for a preoperative image.

The new launch means Navio can now offer both partial and total knee options, providing greater ease of implant alignment, ligament balancing and bone preparation for surgeons carrying out these procedures.

Mike Donoghue, senior vice-president of global marketing for orthopaedics at Smith and Nephew, said: "The Journey II XR bi-cruciate retaining knee has the potential to deliver the best possible outcome for the surgeon and patient through the preservation of important anatomical structures."
