Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee Replacement
Fort Wayne Orthopedics is the first in the region now offering Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee replacement application. Mako Total Knee 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.3
Total knee replacements in the United States are expected to increase 189 percent by 2030,1 yet studies have shown that approximately 30 percent of patients are dissatisfied after conventional surgery.2 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 intra-operatively as needed.
“Mako is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by enabling surgeons to provide each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy, “ said Dr. John Paul Manalo, Orthopedic Surgeon at Fort Wayne Orthopedics. “Our surgical team has information at our fingertips that we’ve never had access to before.”
Stryker’s Mako System is 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.
Our new offering of the Mako Total Knee application is a key demonstration of Fort Wayne Orthopedics’s commitment to provide the community with outstanding healthcare, and we are proud to be at the forefront of innovative robotic technology.
