Mako SmartRobotics™

When you hear Mako SmartRobotics™, it is important for our patients to understand that the SmartRobotics™ do not actually perform the surgery. The surgery is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, who guides Mako’s robotic arm during the surgery to position the implant in the knee and hip joints. Mako SmartRobotics™ does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own or move without the surgeon guiding it. Mako SmartRobotics™ also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.

Mako SmartRobotics™ is an innovative solution for many suffering from painful arthritis of the knee or hip. Mako uses 3D CT-based planning software so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan. This 3D model is used to preplan and assist your surgeon in performing your joint replacement procedure.

In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides Mako’s robotic arm within the predefined area, and Mako’s AccuStop™ technology helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized preoperative plan was created. By guiding your doctor during surgery, Mako’s AccuStop™ technology allows your surgeon to cut less by cutting precisely what’s planned to help protect your healthy bone.

Each patient is unique and can experience joint pain for different reasons. It’s important to talk to us about the reason for your joint pain so you can understand the treatment options available to you. 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 knee or hip pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako SmartRobotics™ for Total Knee, Total Hip, or Partial Knee replacement.

Mako SmartRobotics™ Key Points

  • Mako defines smart robotics. You know more and cut less with Mako.

  • Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted  Surgery is available across the  U.S. in all 50 states.
  • Mako Total Knee transforms the  way total knee replacements are  performed. 
  • Mako SmartRobotics™ combines  three unique components – 3D  CT-based planning, AccuStop haptic technology and insightful data analytics++ – into one platform that has  shown better outcomes for  your total knee, total hip and  partial knee patients compared to  manual surgery.
  • Through CT-based 3D modeling  of bone anatomy, surgeons can  use the Mako System to create  a personalized surgical plan and identify the desired implant  size, orientation and alignment  based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The Mako  System also enables surgeons to  virtually modify the surgical plan  intraoperatively and assists them  in executing bone resections. 
  • The only robotic-arm assisted  surgical technology with AccuStop haptic technology,  Mako SmartRobotics 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.
  •  Mako SmartRobotics™ for  Total Knee has been associated with less pain, less need for opiate analgesics, less need for inpatient physical therapy, reduction in length of hospital stay, improved knee flexion and soft tissue protection in comparison to manual techniques.
  • Total knee replacements in the  United States are expected to increase 189% by 2030, yet studies have shown that approximately 20% of patients  are dissatisfied after conventional  surgery.
  • The Mako Total Knee application  was designed based on the clinically successful Mako Partial Knee and Mako Total Hip applications. Mako Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery enables surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience and offers them  a leadership advantage in our  evolving healthcare environment. 
  • The Mako Total Knee application is a knee replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused  by joint degeneration due to  osteoarthritis. 
  • Mako Total Knee combines Stryker’s advanced robotic technology with its clinically successful Triathlon Total Knee System, which enables surgeons  to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.
  • Mako 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.  
  • Since 2007, more than 300,000 total procedures, including total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements, have been performed with Mako across 26 countries worldwide.
