Digital surgery platform delivers personalized technologies and remote connectivity

Aug. 30, 2021

DePuy Synthes, The Orthopedics Company of Johnson & Johnson, unveiled how it is further advancing its VELYS Digital Surgery Platform using digital technology, robotics and data insights to improve patient care in a news release.

DePuy featured its vision for the future of digital surgery with new technologies and enhancements designed to connect an ecosystem that starts pre-operatively and continues intra- and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting. The VELYS Digital Surgery Platform features the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution for total knee arthroplasty, designed for use with the ATTUNE Total Knee System.

Through its VELYS Digital Surgery Platform, DePuy Synthes is focused on delivering technology that can better inform clinical decisions across the full care continuum, starting with pre-operative patient selection through planning, surgical execution and post-operative follow-up

Now commercially available in the U.S., the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution represents the next chapter in robotics designed around how surgeons plan, execute and perform total knee replacement surgery. Installations in hospitals and ASCs are underway, and more than 100 surgeries globally have been successfully performed to date with the system.

Introduction of VELYS Insights, an integrated clinical support solution that connects care teams to real-time, patient-specific data to help inform decisions pre-op and post-op.  VELYS Insights includes two key capabilities: Care Coordination to help improve case management, surgery readiness and workflow efficiencies, and Patient Path Management designed to help care teams educate, support, communicate with and remotely monitor patients using the VELYS Patient Path mobile app during their knee, hip or shoulder replacement journey.

In addition, image guidance capability for VELYS Hip Navigation, designed to offer precise analysis of implant selection and positioning through user friendly non-invasive navigation, pre-operative digital templating and case planning. It aims to help increase surgical reproducibility, drive OR efficiencies and improve patient outcomes.

DePuy Synthes is excited to introduce new image guidance for the ONETRIAL Analysis feature that will now enable intraoperative data driven decision making for patients positioned laterally, in addition to existing capabilities for the anterior approach technique.
