Polarisᴬᴿ’ STELLAR Completes its First Total Knee Arthroplasty Procedure

26th March 2024

Polarisᴬᴿ has unveiled that its STELLAR Knee device has been utilised in the first total knee arthroplasty operation in the United States. 

The procedure was conducted at the New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Clinic. 

The STELLAR Knee system offers enhanced control that empowers medical specialists to attain optimal lower limb alignment, soft tissue balance, and joint line preservation. 

Operating as a spatial computer, it enables seamless data exchanges between the medical specialist and the software, thereby enhancing decision-making and refining surgical room processes. 

Paul Mikus, the head executive of Polarisᴬᴿ, stated, “STELLAR Knee represents a paradigm shift in the OR, as we aim to offer surgeons robot-like precision and real-time guidance throughout TKA procedures.” 

Mikus went on to add, “By seamlessly integrating into surgical workflows and delivering comparable precision in a mixed reality format, STELLAR Knee ensures that every patient can now access the highest standard of care.”
