Robotic-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery

Our robotically assisted surgeries use advanced technology to create personalized surgical plans and help ensure positive outcomes for our patients. These tools enable us to provide expert orthopaedic surgery with added precision — often resulting in fewer complications and quicker recovery.

Exactech Equinoxe Planning App® and GPS Shoulder® Technology

The Exactech’s Equinoxe Shoulder Replacement System is designed to provide the best possible outcomes for shoulder replacements and reverse total shoulder replacements.

This technology allows surgeons to personalize a surgical plan with a preoperative CT scan, giving them more accurate implant placement and alignment.

Mako SmartRobotics™

The surgeons at Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee have worked with Mako SmartRobotics™ since 2015 for surgeries like total and partial knee replacements and hip replacements. We are proud to have performed the first total hip replacement in Middle Tennessee and the first total knee replacement in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in the state of Tennessee that utilized this technology.

Our Accelerated Recovery Program

The Total Joint and Spine Center has been a vital part of Williamson Health since its inception in 1998. The brainchild of the late Craig Ferrell, M.D., the Total Joint and Spine Center was created to be a facility focused wholly on diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of joint replacements and spinal surgeries.

Our team of orthopaedic surgeons has carried on Ferrell’s legacy by continuing to foster a level of excellence and placing the focus on educating and informing total joint replacement and spinal patients before, during and after their procedures.

In 2012, the Joint and Spine Center began its new Accelerated Recovery Program. This program helps total joint replacement patients get on an expedited path to recovery that minimizes downtime. The ARP is a multi-disciplinary approach that combines patient education and pre-operative pain control to help patients walk just hours after their surgery instead of the next day.

The average hospital stay for a joint replacement has traditionally been three to four days. With the ARP, non-sedating pain medications are given before surgery, which enables a patient to be alert and comfortable enough to be able to begin rehab right away. In most cases, patients are released from the hospital after only one to two days.
