Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center Brings Orthopedic Robotics to Polk County with New Orthopedic Surgeon
Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center welcomes Abhijit Manaswi, M.D. as a newly recruited physician in Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Manaswi is the first in his specialty to bring orthopedic robotics to Polk County.
Dr. Manaswi, a fellowship-trained, board certified orthopedic surgeon, specializes in robotic-assisted technology in knee and hip surgery. This treatment option offers solutions for adults who are affected by medical conditions such as mid-stage and advanced osteoarthritis. Because robotic-assisted joint surgery is less invasive, patients have the potential to experience reduced pain, gain back motion, and return to their daily activities quicker.
Robotic-arm assisted surgery gives patients increased benefits and outcomes over traditional techniques. Using this new technology gives the surgeon a better view of the operating area, with improved clarity and detail, which allows for greater precision when performing surgery in delicate or hard-to-reach areas. For patients, robotic-arm assisted joint surgery may translate to reduced pain, a shorter hospital stay, and a more rapid recovery. Ann Barnhart, CEO at Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center states, “With the addition of orthopedic robotics, Heart of Florida has made yet another significant investment in the health needs of the Polk County community.”
Dr. Manaswi brings a breadth of experience with robotic-arm assisted surgery, successfully performing over 3000 joint replacement procedures. When asked about the integration of technology and his medical practice, Dr. Manaswi said: “My goal is to get my patients back to the lives they want to lead. I use advanced technology to ensure I provide my patients lower risk of dislocation, greater preservation of healthy tissue and a decrease in recovery time.” Dr. Manaswi is committed to finding specialized solutions for each of his patient’s medical needs to make sure they receive comprehensive, quality care.
“We are excited to welcome a physician such as Dr. Manaswi that helps bring quality care using the latest medical technology in benefit of our patients,” said Barnhart. “Dr. Manaswi’s approach to serving patients makes him a great fit for Heart of Florida and the needs of the Polk County Community.”
Dr. Manaswi’s office is accepting new patients.
