Robotic-arm Assisted Surgery (MAKO)
Our orthopaedic surgeons are now able to offer robotic-arm assisted surgery. This includes hip replacement and partial knee replacement surgery using Stryker’s MAKO system.
The MAKO system is a highly advanced, surgeon controlled robotic arm. It enables the surgeon to accurately define, prepare and execute implant positioning based on individual patient CT scans.
The MAKO system isn’t just about the surgery - the MAKO technology provides:
- Patient Specific Pre-Operative planning
- Functional Implant Positioning
- Robotic arm assisted bone preparation
- Precision placement of proven implants
Sydney Adventist Hospital was the first private hospital in NSW to offer the MAKO system.
