Developed by Stryker, the Mako system assists surgeons performing total and partial knee replacements and total hip replacements.

The technology calculates implant size and provides exact placement of the total joint replacement parts based on each patient's bone anatomy.

Orthopedic surgeons Arthur Malkani, MD, Logan Mast, MD, and Madhu Yakkanti, MD, performed most of the total joint replacements with the Mako system at Jewish Hospital.
