Surgical robots set Wisconsin ASC apart from competitors

Claire Wallace -  

Orthopedic surgeon David Eggert, MD, sets his clinic, the Orthopedic & Sports Clinic of the Fox Valley, apart from hospitals by using the precision and personalized care of a surgical robot, The Ripon Press reported July 14. 

The Ripon Press writes that the Appleton, Wis.-based ASC's Stryker Mako robot results in more precise procedures and better patient outcomes to ensure patients have a fast treatment and recovery time. 

The Mako robot helps Dr. Eggert with a number of procedures, including joint replacements, in which the robot can make a patient specific surgical and recovery plan. 

Robotic surgery can reduce human error in procedures, and it can reduce the possibility of issues with an implant. 

Dr. Eggert told the newspaper that without the Mako robot, he can predict surgery outcomes with about 86 percent accuracy. With Mako, he can predict outcomes with almost 100 percent accuracy. 

"If I do robotic surgery, my expectations are met 100 percent of the time," Dr. Eggert told The Ripon Press. "From a technical standpoint, the surgeries are always the same. You can't see that without the robot."
