First Robotic Knee Replacement

First Velys™ Robotic Knee Replacement at Wood County Hospital

On January 10, 2022, Dr. Carlos Gomez, orthopedic surgeon, performed the very first Velys™ Robotic Knee Replacement in Northwest Ohio. A total knee replacement is a procedure to fix damaged parts of a knee with implants. Advanced technology like the robotic assisted devices can help surgeons perform a precise knee replacement surgery personalized for your specific anatomy.

Velys™ Robotic-Assisted Solution aids the surgeon by accessing state -of-the art technology to provide insights for real-time decision making. It helps the surgeon remove the damaged bone with accuracy and uses an infrared camera and optical trackers to help your surgeon achieve the highest possible precision level. By using this robotic-assisted technology your surgeon can perform a knee replacement tailored to you.

“We are excited to provide Wood County with the newest technology.  To provide the best outcomes and quality of life for our patients.” – Dr. Gomez
