The ROSA Knee System:
Keeping life moving for people like Martin

For anyone suffering with degenerative knee pain or osteoarthritis, the right procedure–and the right surgeon–can be life changing.

That was certainly the case for Martin. Ten years ago, he had knee replacement surgery, an ordeal that required him to take four months off from work.

Fast forward to this year. At 71 years young, Martin was facing a knee replacement for his other knee, but this time he was back in action and walking around after four weeks, virtually pain-free. What was the difference? The ROSA Knee System, the team at Beacon, and his commitment to recovery.

“I was interested in outside the box thinking and different therapies,” Martin explains. “Dr. Ebersole hit a home run with ROSA. He and his team are the most phenomenal group I’ve ever seen.”

   What is the ROSA Knee System?

ROSA stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, and it’s designed to assist surgeons by tailoring total knee replacement surgery to the individual needs of each person. For patients like Martin, the minimally-invasive procedure can mean less time in the hospital, reduced pain and discomfort, and less scaring.

And while the procedure made a world of difference for Martin, he’s quick to credit the team at Beacon and the level of care he received for how well he’s doing. “Dr. Ebersole called me personally after the surgery,” he says. “Sally, one of the nurses, is constantly checking in and asking me how I’m doing, and Mr. Johnson, my physical therapist, was kind and gave me great instruction. That continual support just gives you confidence.”
