Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics new robot for knee and hip replacements.

Island Health is pleased to announce the addition of new robotic technology for hip and knee replacements. The CORI® Surgical System uses 3D digital modeling to customize surgical plans for each patient. This robotic procedure assists the surgeon in selectively targeting the portion of the knee or hip damaged by osteoarthritis, helping you keep more of your healthy bone and ligaments.

While this technology is new to Island Health, orthopedic surgeons Dr. Camille Connelly and Dr. Stacia Smith are experienced with the CORI system, having used it for several years at Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics. “You don’t have to go to the big city for the latest technology. We are happy to offer this procedure at Island Health for partial and total knee and hip replacements,” said Dr. Connelly. Robotic technologies enhance your orthopedic surgeon’s expertise for more precise planning, tissue removal and implant placement.

Excelsius is a state-of-theart robot that enhances accuracy and safety for spinal surgeries, combining robotic and intraoperative navigation technology into one system. The Excelsius spine robot has supported Dr. Dawei Lu’s spinal procedures since 2021, maximizing his surgical precision. Patients can benefit from the advantages of robotic surgery, which often involve minimally invasive procedures, quicker recovery periods and reduced tissue damage compared to traditional surgical methods. These robotic technologies allow for even more precision and safety, while also improving the quality of life for our patients.
