Ohio hospital debuts robotic-assisted surgery


Miami Valley South Hospital in Centerville, Ohio, has begun offering robotic-assisted surgery using the Stryker Mako robot.

Chad Weber, DO, of Dayton, Ohio-based Orthopedic Associates, performed the hospital's first robotic-assisted surgery, according to a Feb. 28 LinkedIn post.

The Mako SmartRobotics system uses a CT scan to create a patient-specific 3D model, which surgeons can then use to create a personalized surgical plan for joint replacement patients.
