What is OMNIPlasty?

OMNIPlasty is an innovative computer navigated, robotic assisted total knee replacement system designed to aid the surgeon in delivering the ideal placement of your knee replacement prosthesis.

During an OMNIPlasty procedure, the surgeon is able to develop and execute a surgical plan that is truly specific to your condition and anatomy. This technique enables the surgeon to plan implant position, fit and alignment before any bone resections are performed, and to verify these resections as they are made through the operation ensuring accurate delivery of the desired plan.

Navigated iRobot Total Knee Replacement

Navigation Driven Robotics

OMNIPlasty procedures use a patented BONE MORPHING™ technology that quickly builds and displays a 3D model of your exact anatomy in real-time during the surgery. Using this 3D imagery, your surgeon can safely and accurately plan the desired positioning of the implants that will make up your knee replacement. The computer system then aides the surgeon with a robotic guide for precision bony resection, and allows for verification of these resections as the surgery progresses. In this way the resections can be verified in a step-wise fashion as the operation progresses allowing for confirmation that the exact, specific plan is achieved before your operation is completed. This precision and confirmation of alignment gives the best possible chance of optimising the mechanical factors that can dictate a successful outcome of surgery.

Getting back to action, and staying there

The OMNIPlasty total knee replacement procedure can help patients return to daily lifestyle, and help them stay active. The precision of the navigation system helps ensure ideal leg alignment, which can result in less stress on the knee joint, and improved function. Combined with the OMNI implants, the OMNIPlasty procedure is intended to help patients restore their daily lifestyle, and remain active for years to come.

Why choose OMNIPlasty?


OMNIPlasty is a total knee replacement procedure that uses robotic technology to optimize implant placement. The system is driven by a modern surgical navigation platform that allows the surgeon to meticulously plan and execute a procedure that is specific to each individual patient. Coupled with implant designs that are focused on high performance criteria, OMNIPlasty aims to restore optimal function of your knee replacement.

Patient Specific Surgery

OMNIPlasty uses a patented Bone Morphing™ technology that quickly builds a 3D model of the patient’s knee during surgery. The surgeon can safely and accurately plan his bone resections and implant placement based on each patient’s anatomy. Once the optimal implant position is determined by your surgeon, the system will position the cutting guides to allow for the delivery of this plan. The surgeon is not dependent on making a pre-operative plan based on CT scans, or X-rays,minimsing exposure to unnecessary radiation.

Precise Leg Alignment

Well-defined algorithms and adjustable resection guides enable the surgeon to accurately reconstruct the mechanical axis of the patient’s leg. APEX Robotic Technology™ software works alongside a proprietary robotic cutting guide to plan and execute femoral resections. This advanced technology allows the surgeon to reproduce the leg’s mechanical axis quickly and easily. During surgery, a real time assessment of limb alignment and soft tissue tension can be made for surgeons to verify that their surgery was executed to plan.

Customized Workflows

Surgeons can customize their procedure to closely match their current surgical technique and follow their preferred workflow. With OMNIPlasty we are enabling surgeons to follow their existing your resection philosophy while optimizing implant placement. OMNIPlasty also utilizes instruments designed for navigation, to best facilitate the surgery and increase the efficiency of the operating room.
