Mako Robotic Surgery
Mako robotic surgery is a type of surgery during which a robotic arm assists the surgeon with the surgical procedure, particularly with knee and hip replacement to treat severe arthritis. The surgeon pre-plans the surgery using the Mako software create a 3D CT-based model of the joint. Note that the surgeon performs the surgery, guiding the robotic arm, which ensure the surgeon stays within the predefined boundaries established prior to surgery.
Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control.
