Indiana (Pa.) Regional Medical Center became the first hospital in the tri-county region to offer Stryker's Mako SmartRobotics, according to a March 16 report from The Indiana Gazette.

Mako SmartRobotics uses 3D CT-based planning, haptic technology and data analytics in a single platform that's shown better patient outcomes. This can include less soft tissue damage and more bone preservation for some patients.

The SmartRobotics system was also implemented at Newnan-based Georgia Bone and Joint in November.
