With ROSA Knee, surgeons are able to objectively measure soft tissue feedback and virtually conduct a knee replacement before performing any resections.

• Dynamic patient data throughout the range of motion.

• Live cut values ensure resections remain on plane

A Global Survey - Faster, Safer, Less Painful.
