Smith+Nephew's Ri.Hip Modeler and Ri.Hip Navigation tools for hip replacement were debuted at Duke Regional Hospital in Durham, N.C.
Rhett Hallows, MD, completed the case using the Cori robot, according to a June 8 news release. The navigation application helps maximize accuracy and reproducibility in supine and lateral approaches. The Modeler mobile application is used for surgical planning to evaluate cup placement.
Along with the combined software debut, Thorsten Seyler, MD, PhD, debuted the Ri.Hip Navigation platform in April at Durham-based Duke University.
