January 22, 2021

The FDA has given 510(k) marketing clearance for Johnson & Johnson (J&J) subsidiary DePuy Synthes’ VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution, a device that helps surgeons with total knee replacements.

The table-mounted robotic platform is designed to be used with J&J’s ATTUNE Total Knee System to support surgeons in planning and performing surgeries for total knee replacement.

The system does not require pre-operative imaging to accurately resect bones and position knee implants, and offers advanced planning capabilities, the company said.
