Central Vermont Medical Center adds Mako robot


Berlin-based Central Vermont Medical Center has added a Stryker Mako robot for total joint replacements, according to a Feb. 29 report CBS affiliate WCAX.

The robot increases precision and accuracy for surgeons while reducing pain and recovery times for patients. 

While the robot will be presented as an option to patients, they can still opt for traditional joint replacement procedures. 

Physicians expect initial surgeries using Mako to take longer as they become acclimated to the system, but it will streamline procedures in the long run, according to the report. 

CVMC, an affiliate of the Burlington-based UVM Health Network, is the third UVM facility to add Stryker's Mako robot.
