Blue Belt Technologies Announces Orthopedic Robotics Partnership

bluebeltBlue Belt Technologies has announced a partnership with SurgCenter Development, a leader in the launch and growth of physician-owned Ambulatory Surgery Centers across the United States. The partnership will enable SurgCenter Development locations to build streamlined Orthopedic Robotics Programs with Blue Belt Technologies’ Navio Surgical System.

The Navio system is an advanced robotics-assisted technology for partial knee replacement procedures. Unlike other robotic technologies, the Navio system does not require a pre-operative CT scan. Using Navio, surgeons build patient-specific surgical plans and implant prosthesis with a high degree of accuracy. Its open implant software supports many of the leading implant manufacturers’ knee systems.

Dr. Greg D’Angelo of Bluegrass Orthopaedic and Hand Care in Lexington, Kentucky, and Dr. Sridhar Durbhakula of Piccard Surgery Center in Rockville, Maryland, will be the first physician partners of SurgCenter Development to take advantage of the program.

“Navio delivers patient-specific and robotic advantages at an economic price point that takes into consideration the current health care environment,” said D’Angelo. “The technologies’ intraoperative planning software allows me to virtually measure soft tissue in real time for a well-balanced knee. It accomplishes all this without requiring patients to get a pre-operative CT scan.”

“This partnership is an excellent opportunity to provide SurgCenter Development’s partner sites with leading technology in robotics-assisted partial knee replacements,” said Craig Markovitz, COO of Blue Belt Technologies. “We look forward to success at our initial two SCD facilities and expanding this relationship throughout their organization.” •
