CUREXO Technology Corporation, pioneer in medical robotics and world leader in image-directed robotic products for orthopaedic applications, which is focused on marketing its robotic system, announced that it has submitted a premarket notification 510(k) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for market clearance in the U.S. for use of its ROBODOC® Surgical System for Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA).
The 510(k) application is used when there exist similar, previously-cleared technologies in the marketplace. This submission follows the company’s recently cleared 510(k) for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) and will offer surgeons an accurate, precise, and reproducible surgical technique to prepare the joint during a knee replacement procedure. The process will allow surgeons to preoperatively plan their surgery in a 3-D virtual space and then execute the surgery exactly as planned in the operating theatre.
Brent D. Mittelstadt, President and CEO of CUREXO Technology Corporation said, We are very pleased to announce the submission of the TKA 510(k) application to the FDA, as it demonstrates that we are moving forward with achieving our goals of providing a world class multi-platform technology,” said Brent D. Mittelstadt, President and CEO of CUREXO Technology Corporation.
