Pennsylvania medical center completes 500th Mako robot procedure


Indiana (Pa.) Regional Medical Center has successfully completed 500 joint replacement surgeries with the Mako SmartRobotics system.

The system provides surgeons with more information prior to total knee, partial knee and total hip replacement procedures, increasing precision and accuracy, according to a Feb. 23 news release. 

Surgeons can create a personalized plan for each patient to optimize their procedure, allowing for less pain and shorter hospital stays than manual techniques permit. 

The medical center offers joint replacement surgeries with the Mako system at its locations in Indiana and Johnstown, Pa., the release said.
