Slocum Center Surgeons Are Now Offering Mako® Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement at McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center in Springfield
Robotic-assisted surgery is yet one more way orthopedic specialists can better help patients make dramatic improvements in their daily life. Mako robotic-assisted surgery offers patients an exact, personalized surgical plan and allows for advanced precision in placing joint replacement implants during surgery. All of the doctors at Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offering the procedures have completed additional training to use the technology.
The Mako system uses a 3D model of the patient’s knee or hip to create a custom surgical plan. Micro-adjustments are made to the patient’s plan based on soft-tissue factors and joint mapping during surgery. Surgeons are in full control of robotic instrumentation and they are able to place the implants in specific and reproducible alignment, potentially minimizing soft-tissue trauma during the operation.
