Dr. Frank Pompo Offering Robot-Assisted Knee Replacement

Frank J. Pompo, M.D., board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates, is offering robotic-assisted knee replacement using the state-of-the-art CORI Surgical System. Procedures using the CORI robotic system are being performed at the practice’s Torrington office on-site surgery center, Litchfield Hills Surgery Center, at 245 Alvord Park Road. Dr. Pompo sees patients at the practice’s Torrington office as well as in Bristol at 281 N. Main St. Patients in need of specialized knee care are encouraged to call (860) 482-8539.

Offered locally by Dr. Pompo, CORI robotic-assisted surgical technology is designed to provide patients with an enhanced joint replacement experience and outcome. Using advanced instrumentation, computer assistance and robotic-assisted hardware, the CORI system helps surgeons accurately and precisely place and align an implant during knee replacement surgery based on a customized surgical plan using a 3D model of the patient’s knee.

CORI robotic-assisted knee replacement can offer patients:

  • A faster return home, faster recovery and faster return to function and activity.
  • Optimized alignment and balance for more accurate implant placement.
  • A more natural-feeling new knee through additional precision and healthy tissue preservation.
  • Improved efficiency to reduce time under anesthesia and overall procedure time.
  • Less radiation exposure in tailored surgical planning (No CT or MRI needed).

“We strive to provide our patients with the most advanced, state-of-the-art treatments and procedures locally,” said Dr. Pompo. “It’s exciting to be able to offer this transformative technology to our knee replacement candidates at our surgery center.”

Dr. Pompo graduated with his medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. He completed his preliminary year of postdoctoral training at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville before finishing his training with an orthopedic surgery residency at The University of Toledo Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio. Dr. Pompo is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He offers nonsurgical joint care as well as fracture care, hip and knee replacement and knee arthroscopy.
