Advanced Robotic-Assisted Procedures
We use advanced technology and equipment to conduct minimally invasive procedures, such as surgeries using Mako SmartRobotics™, for shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. Our robotic-assisted procedures may promote greater safety for
our patients as they can help reduce the use of and exposure to radiation and fluoroscopy.
As compared to traditional surgeries, our robotic-assisted procedures may provide better accuracy and usually make smaller incisions that may help lessen potential risks and speed up your healing period. This may help you get back to your daily routine
faster and make it possible to live your life the way you want. Our advanced technology also helps our orthopedic surgeons in planning the surgery and location of the artificial component, whether it’s a joint replacement, shoulder replacement,
spine replacement, knee replacement or a hip replacement.
