Woodstock Hospital Introduces Smith and Nephew’s CORI Surgical System

Thursday September 14th, 2023

The Woodstock Hospital is excited to announce the integration of the CORI Surgical System by Smith and Nephew. We are the seventh, hospital in Canada to implement this leading-edge technology to advance our orthopedic and surgical capabilities. This robotic-assisted surgical system, will provide our medical professionals with advanced tools for planning and executing complex knee and joint replacement surgeries. The CORI will provide more accuracy, efficiency and less overall time in the Operating Room, improving patient experience and overall health outcomes for our community.
The CORI system employs advanced imaging and 3D modelling to assist surgeons in creating surgical plans that are tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy. This level of accuracy ensures optimal implant alignment and placement for both knee and hip implants, therefore reducing the requirements for joint revisions.
On September 12th, 2023 Woodstock Hospital celebrated the first surgery using the state-of-the-art CORI Surgical System. Doctor Petis, a Physician in Orthopedics, shares, “We are very excited to offer robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery to our patients. The CORI robot will allow us to perform the surgery with enhanced accuracy and tailor the procedure better to match each individual’s anatomy and joint kinematics. This will translate into better patient-reported outcomes and improved long-term function for our patients.”
The Woodstock Hospital remains committed to staying at the forefront of medical innovation, and this new equipment reinforces their dedication. “I firmly believe that embracing cutting-edge technology is paramount to providing the best possible care to our community. Our vision is to make the Woodstock Hospital a leader in healthcare excellence where technology and compassion converge for the well-being of our patients.” Perry Lang, the CEO & President of the Woodstock Hospital, explained.
