Now offering the innovative Mako SmartRobotics™ for your total knee replacement
John Eggers, M.D., Ph.D. of Orthopedic Health of Kansas City now offers Mako SmartRobotics™. Mako Total Knee combines Stryker’s advanced robotic technology with its clinically proven Triathlon Total Knee System,1 which enables surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience.2
Total knee replacements in the United States are expected to increase 189% by 2030,3 yet studies have shown that approximately 20% of patients are dissatisfied after conventional surgery.4 Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, our surgeons can now use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan based on a patient’s unique anatomy and to virtually modify the surgical plan intraoperatively as needed. The only robotic-arm assisted surgical technology equipped with AccuStop™ haptic technology, Mako for Total Knee Replacement enables surgeons to limit soft tissue damage by providing visual, auditory and tactile feedback, limiting sawblade action outside of the haptic boundary.5
“Mako SmartRobotics™ enhances accuracy allowing for a faster and often less painful recovery by providing enhanced preoperative information and technology with real time intraoperative feedback utilizing state of the art technology”
Stryker’s Mako System is the first and only SmartRobotics™ System that can be used across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements.
Our new offering of the SmartRobotics™ System is a key demonstration of John Eggers, M.D., Ph.D. and Orthopedic Health of Kansas City ’s commitment to provide the community with outstanding healthcare, and we are proud to be at the forefront of innovative robotic technology.
