Mako Robotic Arm System
Surgical Robot for Total Knee and Hip Replacement
St. John's Medical Center now offers Stryker's Mako Robotic Arm
system for total knee and hip replacement surgery in Jackson, WY. The
Mako system which includes three different robotic arms to support surgeries,
will transform the way total knee and hip replacements are performed.
Using virtual 3D modeling, the robotic system allows surgeons to create
each patient’s surgical plan before entering the operating room,
including determining implant size, orientation, and alignment based on
each patient’s unique anatomy. During surgery, the surgeon can validate
that plan and make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic
arm to execute that plan.
The Mako Total Knee application is a knee replacement treatment option
designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis.
It combines Stryker’s advanced robotic technology with its clinically
proven GetAroundKnee, Triathlon Total Knee System, which enabled surgeons
to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy
during laboratory testing.
