What is Mako robotic arm assisted surgery?

This highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling our surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.

The Stryker Mako system facilitates higher level alignment and positioning during surgery, resulting in shorter recovery times and reduced post-operative pain helping patients get back to doing what they love.

Mako robotic arm assisted technology for total hip replacement

Each patient is unique and can experience joint pain for different reasons. Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body.

It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their hip pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako Total Hip replacement, which may provide you with relief from your hip pain.
