Robodoc's surgical system cleared by FDA

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for Robodoc's DigiMatch Robodoc surgical system. The device's precise, repeatable surgical technique involves drilling into the patient's hip to prepare the joint for replacement surgery. The surgeon is therefore able to select the most suitable implant after looking at a CT scan of the joint. DigiMatch is the first active robotic system cleared by the FDA for orthopaedic surgery, the firm claims, adding that the system was more precise and less traumatic for patients than manual methods. Sacramento, California-based Robodoc received the clearance under the name of its predecessor, Integrated Surgical Systems.
