THINK Surgical and United Orthopedic Partner on Total Knees

THINK Surgical and United Orthopedic Corporation USA will collaborate to support the TSolution One® Total Knee Application (shown above, left). THINK Surgical recently obtained FDA clearance to use the U2™ Knee (shown above, right) with the TSolution One Total Knee Application.

The partnership will leverage the active robot in THINK's TSolution One Total Knee Application, used with UNITED's U2 Knee, which has been on the U.S. market since 2006 and has been implanted in more than 140,000 surgical cases in 39 countries. The U2 Knee System reduces the number of trays required from six to 1.5.

The TSolution One Total Knee Application combines TPLAN®, a 3D pre-surgical planning workstation, and TCAT®, the active robot. Pre-surgical planning allows for virtual design and of the patient's unique joint replacement plan using a choice of implant options. The active robot prepares the joint according to the surgeon's plan for precise implant placement.

"We are excited to be partnering with THINK Surgical to bring enhanced precision and innovation to the orthopedic market worldwide," said Calvin Lin, president of United Orthopedic Corporation USA. "By combining THINK's TSolution One Total Knee Application and UNITED's U2 Knee System, we're working together to deliver cutting-edge accuracy for a proven comprehensive total knee arthroplasty solution. We continue to be committed to improving patient outcomes via innovation and strategic alliances."
