Robossis is an orthopedic surgical robot which benefits patients by eliminating mal-alignments and repeated operations; and minimizing radiation exposure, soft tissue damage, recovery time, and cost. Robossis has the potential to become the omnipotent presence in orthopedic surgery that the da Vinci robot has become in laparoscopic procedures.
