Robotic-Aided Precision Means Faster Recovery and More Mobility
We once thought that robotic surgery was far off in the future. At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), the future has arrived. Meet Mako: robotic-arm-assisted technology that's helping orthopaedic surgeons replace hip and knee joints at Saint Vincent Hospital in Erie, the only hospital in the northwestern Pennsylvania region that is using Mako. The Mako procedure is six times more precise than is possible with manual techniques.
