Orthopedic Surgeons, Dr. Yair Kissin and Dr. Stefan Kreuzer, to provide demonstrations of the Second-Generation TSolution One System in conjunction with the technology’s full commerical launch.

(FREMONT, CA) August 20, 2021— THINK Surgical, Inc., an innovator in the field of orthopedic active robot surgery, is pleased to announce its participation in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) 2021 Annual Meeting, August 31 to September 3 at the San Diego Convention Center. THINK Surgical will showcase its second-generation TSolution One® Total Knee Application, which features an active robot for orthopedic surgery, and is now in the midst of its full commercial launch. Visit THINK Surgical at Booth 1321 in Hall B.

“We are excited to demonstrate our next-generation, robot technology at this prestigious orthopedic event,” said Jay Yang, acting CEO and COO, THINK Surgical “The TSolution One Total Knee Application is the only commercially available active robot system for total knee replacement that supports implants from different manufacturers, giving orthopedic surgeons more options to individualize each patient’s treatment.”

Throughout the conference, Yair D. Kissin, M.D.*, FAAOS, vice chair of the Department of Surgical Orthopedics at Hackensack University Medical Center (Hackensack, NJ) and Stefan W. Kreuzer, M.D.*, FAAOS, founder of INOV8 Orthopedics (Houston, TX) will host demonstrations of the TSolution One Total Knee Application at THINK’s booth.

“The TSolution One gives surgeons the ability to plan the surgery before entering the operating room and provides each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy,” said Dr. Kreuzer. “The pre-planning reduces surprises, making each knee replacement procedure more predictable.”

“The open implant platform of the TSolution One is truly a transformative leap above the other robotic-assisted surgical systems on the market,” added Dr. Kissin.  “The TSolution One gives surgeons the ability to select the implant from a variety of manufacturers, which they feel the most comfortable and familiar with, and in some cases may be less expensive.  Other robotic systems are limited to a single manufacturer’s implant.”

The TSolution One Total Knee Application consists of TPLAN®, the 3D pre-surgical planning workstation, and TCAT®, the active robot.  Pre-surgical planning allows the surgeon to design and prepare, in a virtual environment, the patient’s personalized joint replacement surgical plan. The active robot aids the surgeon in executing the preoperative surgical plan with automated cutting and removal of the diseased bone and cartilage.  The TSolution One Total Knee Application helps surgeons to optimize implant placement based on each patient’s unique anatomy. 

This second-generation robot, which received FDA clearance in November of 2020, incorporates several changes to the hardware and software, which significantly enhance the system’s efficiency, flexibility and ease of use while maintaining the precision and innovation that is the hallmark of the TSolution One Total Knee Application system.
