Newswise — Hackensack University Medical Center recently performed the first total knee replacement surgery in the nation utilizing the TSolution One® Total Knee Application by THINK Surgical, Inc. after the groundbreaking technology received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in October 2019.

“The TSolution One® surgical system offers osteoarthritis patients precise bone-cutting technology that will improve outcomes," said Mark D. Sparta, FACHE, president and chief hospital executive, Hackensack University Medical Center and executive vice president of Population Health, Hackensack Meridian Health. “Hackensack University Medical Center has an outstanding surgical robotics and orthopedic program, and we look forward to enhancing the patient experience with the latest technological advances.”

“Hackensack University Medical Center’s nationally-recognized orthopedic and robotic surgery team offers patients the most advanced, cutting-edge technology to improve their quality of life,” said Michael A. Kelly, M.D. chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center. “We are honored to be the first hospital in the country to perform total knee replacement surgery utilizing this state-of-the-art robot technology that provides a more personal surgical plan for our patients.”

On February 10, Yair David Kissin, M.D., performed the first total knee replacement surgery utilizing the TSolution One® surgical system on Eugenia Dziopa, 64, of Sussex, New Jersey at Hackensack University Medical Center. Mrs. Dziopa suffers from severe arthritis in her knee. Mrs. Dziopa considers herself an active person who is a mother and grandmother. Over the last 6 to 8 months, her arthritis worsened, her pain level increased, and activity level decreased. Nonoperative forms of treatment, such as injections and physical therapy, did not improve her situation. She began considering total knee replacement when she learned about the TSolution One® Total Knee Application.
