Maryland orthopedic practice adds joint replacement robot

Robotics

Sailsbury, Md.-based Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates added the eastern shore region's first Mako robot for joint replacements, ABC affiliate WNDT reported Jan. 10.

Surgeons at the practice have completed their first case using Mako, which creates a CT scan to help physicians plan procedures. The robot can make surgeries more accurate compared with traditional joint replacements.

"The robot helps make really accurate cuts in joint replacement in a manner that is highly accurate and reproducible for many surgeons," Pasquale Petrera, MD, told the station.
