Bringing Advanced Technology to Rhode Island Patients


WAKEFIELD, RI, September 15, 2017 – With better surgical outcomes as the goal, Ortho RI strives to stay in the forefront of emerging technology, such as robotics. Most recently, their leading robotic joint replacement surgeon, Robert C. Marchand, MD, launched a Robotic Joint Replacement Institute to offer the most advanced and comprehensive treatment for partial knee replacement, total knee replacement and total hip replacement patients.

The Institute will help educate patients on the advances made possible by robotics. “We believe in using technology and our deep experience to benefit patients, and in sharing our knowledge with patients, surgeons and providers,” Dr. Marchand said.

Robotic joint replacement offers many benefits. For example, robotics enables partial knee replacements to be done on an outpatient basis.

“Robotic surgery can also mean shorter hospitalizations for total knee and total hip patients, as well as more predictable, balanced, and aligned joint replacements,” said Dr. Marchand.

The end result for patients is faster pain relief, shorter recovery and more rapid return to an active lifestyle. More information can be found on
