Robot-assisted knee replacement now available in DeSoto County

OrthoSouth surgeon Andrew Wodowski, MD completed DeSoto County’s first robotics-assisted total knee replacement on Thursday, Dec, 9 at the OrthoSouth Surgery Center in Southaven, using the center’s new CORI robotic  system. 

OrthoSouth is the only center in DeSoto County offering robotics-assisted knee replacement, and further, in an exclusively outpatient setting. The addition of the new high-tech option for same-day knee replacement officially adds one more layer of  convenience for thousands of people in North Mississippi who could potentially benefit from a knee replacement surgery. 

“We have offered the ‘same day’ outpatient knee replacement option at our Southaven Surgery Center for several years,” said  Dr. Wodowski. “With the addition of the CORI system at our Southaven surgery center, we’re now able to blend two unique experiences into one, offering patients the benefits of both robotic-assisted surgery and outpatient knee replacement at the  same time.” 

OrthoSouth now offers robotics-assisted knee replacement surgery at both outpatient surgery centers, in Germantown, TN and  Southaven, MS.
