Dr. Chad Weber performs 1,000th robotic-assisted procedure


Chad Weber, DO, a surgeon at Wayne HealthCare in Greenville, Ohio, has performed his 1,000th robotic-assisted orthopedic procedure using Stryker Mako's SmartRobotics, according to a Jan. 24 report from the Daily Advocate

Dr. Weber uses Mako's robot for both hip and knee replacements at the facility, and hopes that the technology will grow for shoulder, spine and ankle use in the coming years. 

When Dr. Weber's office first received a Mako robot, he was performing around 100 robotic-assisted joint replacements a year. That number has now grown to over 300. 

Wayne HealthCare, now partnered with Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio, was the first hospital in the region to obtain a Stryker Mako robotic arm.
