Artificial Joint Surgical Robot

Differentiated product and medical solutions based on cutting-edge medical technology

CUREXO’s Artificial Joint Surgical Robot is

Humankind’s first surgical robot which has been developed under cooperation with US companies and organizations since 1986.
The first robotic hip joint relocation was performed successfully in 1992, which was awarded the Computerworld Smithsonian Award, the Nobel Prize in the medical world, in the same year.
Later, the R&D on the commercialization of the surgical robot system got into its stride and started to commercialize the system in Europe in 1990. It has advanced through the continued R&D since then.
CUREXO has put endless efforts into R&D including the ensurement of the robot patent with IBM and ISS in the US and the tangible and intangible assets for more stable technical development.
The robot system for artificial joint surgery is the most advanced surgical equipment capable of 3D Pre-planning, Virtual Surgery, and precise Cutting, and provides accurate and precise surgery with a doctor.
Name of Product: Robotic surgical system, navigation

Why Robotic Artificial Joint Surgery is good?

1Personalized pre-planning

As each person has a different face, the shape of bone is also different. CUREXO’s artificial joint surgical robot shows the patient’s bone in 3D images, and the doctor can use those images for pre-planning of surgery personalized for the patient.

2Pre-selection of artificial joint and precise insertion of artificial joint

What’s as important as the precise surgical plan is to select and insert the personalized artificial joint. The doctor uses the robot to select the artificial joint for the patient and insert it accurately.

3Precise cutting for submillimeter dimensional accuracy and optimum alignment

Precise cutting serves the optimum result.
CUREXO’s robotic artificial joint surgery system provides the correct alignment of a patient’s leg axis with the submillimeter dimensional accuracy and precise cutting for the optimal surgical outcome.

4Reduction of side effect and reoperation

CUREXO’s robotic artificial joint surgery reduces such side effects as inequality of limb length, pulmonary embolism, and fracture. The risk of infection is also reduced by using fewer instruments than in conventional surgery.

Clinical Result

According to the long-term research on the relocation of hip joint (hip bone), the insertion of more precise artificial joint (implant) provides the appropriate weight load, thus stimulating*1 the bone growth and decreasing the loss of bone density*2.

  • Artificial joint-bone surface contact ratio 95%*3 Artificial joint-bone surface contact ratio 21%*3
  • Femoral fracture during surgery 0/75*4 Artificial joint-bone surface contact ratio 21%*4
  • Inequality of lower limb 0-12mm*4 Inequality of lower limb 0-29mm*4
