Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System
Columbus Community Hospital (CCH) recently purchased the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System by Stryker, which can offer patients relief from arthritis of the hip or knee through joint replacement surgery.
This state-of-the-art system uses a 3D virtual model of a patient’s unique anatomy and a robotic arm to help orthopedic surgeons plan and perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements.
The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System gives orthopedic surgeons the ability to:
- Personalize patient-specific, 3-D bone models
- Modify the procedure intra-operatively to help restore natural anatomy
- Control a robotic-arm in bone preparation
In clinical and laboratory studies, the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System was shown to help surgeons perform their surgical plans more accurately.
This increased level of precision and customization leads to the following benefits for patients:
- Less trauma to surrounding tissue
- Shorter hospital stays, and
- Less post-operative pain
