Stryker enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with launch of Mako robotic-arm assisted total knee application

The first and only robotic technology that can be used across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements now available

Kalamazoo, Michigan - March 14, 2017 - Stryker Corporation (SYK) announced the commercial launch of the highly anticipated robotic-arm assisted total knee arthroplasty application for use with its Mako System at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting in San Diego. This latest advancement distinguishes the Mako System as the first and only robotic technology that can be used across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements.

Mako Total Knee combines Stryker`s advanced robotic technology with its clinically proven Triathlon Total Knee System ("GetAroundKnee"), enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.1 Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient`s unique anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.
