Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
An alternative to traditional knee and hip replacement surgery, Trumbull Regional Medical Center is the ONLY hospital in the area to offer innovative Mako® robotic-arm assisted surgery for increased precision of total hip and knee replacement procedures as well as partial-knee replacement for patients.
This cutting-edge technology uses GPS software to allow placement of a patient’s hip or knee implants with an accuracy that was never before possible. This accuracy leads to a lower rate of revision and improved longevity of the implants.
Benefits of a Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery may include:
• Improved surgical outcomes
• More natural feeling joint following surgery
• Less implant wear and loosening
• Joint resurfacing
• Bone sparing
• Smaller incision
• Less scarring
• Reduced blood loss
• Shorter hospitalization
• Rapid recovery
