By | Interests | No Comments

It’s prime running season, and many are finally following through on those new year’s resolutions to work out more.

So, we asked do running/walking shoes really matter and how can people with foot issues (75 percent of Americans will experience foot health problems) get moving without going broke or suffering in pain. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Dolfi Herscovici, Jr. joins us now with tips on what you really need to know.

Less pain and swelling post-operatively than traditional total joint replacement methods

Tampa, FL. (June 24, 2016.) – Florida Orthopaedic Institute announced today that Michael A. Miranda, D.O. completed the 20th case of partial knee replacement using the NAVIO® Surgery System. As the only location in Florida with the NAVIO robotic assisted surgical system, it allows FOI surgeons to perform precise and accurate partial knee replacements. This system, developed by medical device maker Smith & Nephew, involves only a simple x-ray rather than a time-consuming and radiation-intensive CT scan, before the surgeon uses advanced planning software to tailor the surgery to the patient’s anatomy, align the implant, and balance the knee.

By | Interests | No Comments

TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 2, 2015) – Florida Orthopaedic Institute announces that Dr. Michael Miranda is the first physician in Florida to use the Blue Belt Technologies Navio® Surgical System, a robotic-controlled handpiece. Dr. Miranda used the technology to perform a partial knee replacement on Friday and, for the first time in the country, implemented a ZUK uni-compartmental knee implant. The implant was introduced globally in 2004 and was acquired in June 2015 by Smith & Nephew.

The Navio technology for partial knee replacements utilizes an advanced CT-free, intra-operative registration, planning and navigation platform to assist the surgeon in building patient-specific surgical plans. During Friday’s procedure, the robotic-controlled handpiece assisted Dr. Miranda in preparing the bone to enable highly precise and consistent results for optimal outcomes.
