Dosher Expands Robotic-arm Assisted Surgery

By Staff Reports, posted Jul 1, 2022
Dosher Memorial Hospital recently added Stryker’s Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip replacement procedures.
 
The Southport hospital launched its robotics program early last year with Mako partial and total knee procedures.
 
“To date, the surgical team at Dosher has performed over 250 knee replacements using Mako technology,” Dosher President and CEO Lynda Stanley said in a news release.  “Due to consistent positive patient outcomes from our Mako knee cases, the Board of Trustees and Executive Team agreed that this was a program we needed to focus on and continue to grow.”
 
“Robotic-arm assisted surgery allows surgeons to create a patient-specific 3D plan and perform joint replacement surgery using a surgeon-controlled robotic-arm that helps the surgeon execute the procedure with a high degree of accuracy,” the release stated.
 
For the total hip application, patients often are those who suffer from degenerative joint disease of the hip. 
 
“Using a virtual 3D model, the Mako System allows surgeons to personalize each patient’s surgical plan, with a mapped-out strategy before the surgeon enters the operating room,” Stanley said. “During surgery, the surgeon can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments, while the robotic-arm then allows the surgeon to execute that plan with a high level of accuracy and predictability.”
