The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology
The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology transforms the way total hip and knee replacements are performed. Mako Technology utilizes CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy.The result is a custom surgical experience tailored to each patient. The Mako helps develop a 3D model of the patient’s knee or hip structure, which demonstrates where and how much damage has occurred.This serves as a strong foundational guide for the surgery plan and allows the surgeon to examine the procedure in Mako’s virtual software before making any incisions.The surgeon remains in control of the procedure, aided by precise measurements from Mako.This can result in a more predictable surgical experience and increased accuracy.The Orthopaedic Surgeons utilize Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted technology at Montrose Memorial Hospital.
daVinci Robotic Surgical System Performs Minimally Invasive Procedures
Our highly skilled surgeons use the advanced daVinci robotic surgical system to perform minimally invasive procedures. The robot is a virtual extension of the surgeon’s hands and eyes which provides greater dexterity and visualization than open or laparoscopic procedures provide,
and patients have less pain. Patients experience shorter hospital stays and faster recovery. This technology represents a significant advance for surgery. Surgeons who specialize in gynecology, urology and general surgery at Montrose Memorial Hospital use the daVinci surgical system.
“I had very little pain from the small incisions after my hysterectomy and it was pretty amazing how good I felt after a major surgery,” said a local very happy and satisfied patient.
