Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery

Create your future with Mako

Stryker acquired MAKO Surgical Corporation in December 2013 with the goal of transforming the orthopaedic industry. The acquisition combines Stryker’s implants enabled by MAKO’s proprietary robotic-arm assisted technology. The current Mako System offers partial knee, total hip, and total knee applications.

Functional implant positioning

Patient-specific implant placement as a result of the three unique steps of the Mako procedure.

Mako systems

Enhanced planning

Patient-specific pre-operative plan enables more accurate implant positioning.14, 98-101 CT data is segmented to create a 3D model of the patient’s bony anatomy.

An individualized pre-operative plan is created and reviewed with the surgeon prior to the Mako procedure.

Mako systems

Dynamic joint balancing

Surgeon-controlled intra-operative adjustments can be made to optimize implant placement.18 Kinematic and soft tissue data are collected intra-operatively and applied to the virtual CT model.

The surgeon reviews the pre-op plan and can modify it if necessary based on the intra-operative data to virtually balance the joint and achieve individualized placement.

Robotic-arm assisted bone preparation

The surgeon then executes the individualized intra-operative plan using robotic-arm assisted bone preparation to achieve functional implant positioning.
