Recently, Dr. Barrett and his P.A. Jana attended the National Sales meeting for DePuy, where they were featured speakers on the main stage, discussing the the future of digital technology in joint replacement.
Dr. Barrett and Jana discussed the introduction of a variety of patient engagement apps, computer assisted alignment and the use of robotics in total knee replacement.
In practice, doctors at Proliance Orthopedic Associates are currently using computer navigation for hip replacements. This week, Dr. Barrett and Jana re-started their computer navigation use for knee replacement. These are exciting times for the convergence of digital technology and joint replacement and we at POA are leading this effort.
