Bone & Joint’s Surgical Center is the first orthopedic center in North Central Wisconsin to offer Stryker’s Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology for total knee and total hip joint replacement procedures. Robotic technology combines computer-generated precision with the skill and expertise and talent of Bone & Joint’s orthopedic surgeons. When undergoing a robotics-arm assisted joint replacement, studies have indicated patients can experience:
• Faster recovery times
• Shorter medical stays
• Less inpatient physical therapy
• Less pain after surgery, reducing the need for pain medications
• Better movement, flexion, and long-term function
These benefits result from the minimally invasive surgical characteristic of robotics accuracy. Smaller incisions reduce scarring and blood loss. There is less soft tissue damage near the surgical site and accurate and individualized placement and positioning of the implants.
