Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center

Palm Beach Gardens is the First Hospital in Florida to Implement CT-Free Robotic Orthopedic Surgery

Patient Experience

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the first and only hospital in the state of Florida now using the NAVIO orthopedic surgical system to help surgeons perform precision partial knee replacement surgeries using the JOURNEY UNI knee. 

This technology uses a CT-free intra-operative registration, planning and navigation platform to assist the surgeon in building patient-specific surgical plans. With no pre-operative CT-scan required, NAVIO patients receive the benefits of robotic assistance without additional time spent for pre-operative procedures.

In addition to the elimination of the pre-operative CT scan, this minimally-invasive procedure requires fewer doctor office visits to prep for surgery and allows for freehand sculpting, which may provide better precision and more accuracy for the surgeon.
