NYC hospital acquires Stryker Mako SmartRobotics technology

Claire Wallace -  

NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst has acquired the Stryker Mako SmartRobotics system, which allows the hospital to offer its patients a minimally invasive option for hip and knee replacements. 

It is the first hospital within the NYC Health system to introduce Mako robotic procedures, according to an Aug. 10 email to Becker's. 

"“The Mako robotic system, which combines 3D CT-based planning with data analytics, allows us to create a more personalized plan for each patient based on their unique anatomy before surgery," Dr. Rohit Hasija, MD, Elmhurst’s hip and knee program director, said in the release. "During surgery, we can then confirm that plan and adjust if needed, all the while guiding a surgical robotic-arm to perform that plan."
