Washington Hospital Healthcare System Takes a Leading Step with Innovative TMINI Miniature Robotic System by THINK Surgical
Thursday, September 28, 2023
The Washington Hospital Healthcare System, nestled within Fremont, California, operates a 415-bed acute-care facility, wholeheartedly dedicated to addressing the evolving needs of the dynamic Bay Area community. In a significant stride forward, THINK Surgical has achieved FDA's 510(k) clearance for its groundbreaking TMINI Miniature Robotic System, signaling the launch of this innovative product throughout the United States.
The TMINI system introduces a wireless robotic handpiece, a technological marvel aimed at providing surgical assistance during total knee replacement procedures. It collaborates seamlessly with a meticulously crafted surgical plan based on three-dimensional CT scans, adeptly adjusting to the surgeon's hand movements to ensure precise placement of surgical instruments. Noteworthy for its user-friendly interface, the TMINI system not only simplifies knee replacement surgery but also supplants a plethora of manual tools typically utilized in such procedures.
One notable aspect of THINK Surgical's approach is its commitment to an open implant library. This progressive approach ensures the continual addition of new implant options to the platform, offering surgeons the freedom to select the most suitable implant for each patient. This contrasts sharply with existing robotic platforms, which often restrict surgeons to a single implant brand, underscoring THINK Surgical's dedication to empowering healthcare practitioners and enhancing patient care.
