What is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?
Using state-of-the-art technology, the Mako® robotic-arm assists Wisconsin Orthopedic Surgeon David Eggert, MD prepare and perform complex joint replacement system.
This advanced surgical device helps to improve patient outcomes and reduce risks and for knee or hip replacement. Mako technology offers a higher level of customization and accuracy for implant alignment and positioning.
The Orthopedic & Sports Institute in Appleton, Wisconsin is the first to offer Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery™, the latest advancement in robotic technology, in Northeast Wisconsin. This new surgical approach to joint replacement offers a higher level of customization and precision for implant alignment and positioning.
A significant improvement in patient outcomes is attributed to the precision of robotic-assisted surgery. Performed in the traditional way, without robotic assistance, hip and knee replacements can fail from dislocation or loosening mechanical problems with the implant itself.
When using robotic-assisted technology during surgery, the failure rate for joint replacement declines significantly, as does the need for revision surgery, thus improving patient satisfaction.
How does Robotic-Assisted Surgery work?
Dr. Eggert create a patient-specific 3-D plan that uses a CT scan to guide the reconstruction
The personalized 3-D plan takes into account each patient’s specific anatomy and ligament balance
During the operation, Dr. Eggert uses the robotic arm to assist in performing the joint replacement surgery
Dr. Eggert guides the robotic arm within the predefined area, and the robotic arm technology ensures precision according to plan
