FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- THINK Surgical, Inc., a global medical device manufacturer of the only active robotic surgical system for orthopaedic surgery, announces that it has entered the South Korean market with its TSolution One Surgical System and has successfully completed over ten Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) cases.
On Aug. 22, 2017, the first commercial TKA surgery using the TSolution One Surgical System was successfully performed by Dr. JongHo Park at Busan Centum Hospital in Busan City, Korea. Busan Centum is the first hospital in Korea to offer the TSolution One Surgical System, the latest robotic system for joint replacement. Since then, more than 10 cases have been accomplished between Dr. Park and his colleague, Dr. ChanMo Son. According to Dr. Park, "Pre-surgical preplanning was found to be effective in discovery of deformation on lower limb or joint. High-precision bone cutting reduces pain after surgery and improves functional recovery." Both surgeons have recognized the benefits of active robotics for their patients and look forward to treating more patients using this exclusive technology.
The TSolution One Surgical System received clearance from the KFDA earlier this year. It received clearance for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) in February and TKA in March. The system currently has 510(k) clearance for THA in the U.S. and CE mark for use in the EU and plans to obtain 510(k) clearance and CE mark for TKA in the near future. The TSolution One core technology has been used in thousands of total joint replacements for both hip and knee worldwide.
"This milestone demonstrates how quickly TSolution One can be adopted in an OR environment. We truly believe it has the ability to transform joint replacement procedures to improve surgical outcomes and make difficult surgeries more predictable," said John Hahn, CEO of THINK Surgical, Inc. TSolution One is an open platform system that provides surgeons with CT based 3D pre-surgical planning using an open implant library combined with a surgical robot that precisely executes the patient's personalized plan and prepares the bone cavity and joint surface with sub-millimeter dimensional accuracy.
