Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery

WHC offers Mako SmartRobotics™ for total knee and hip replacement surgeries

Waverly Health Center is the only hospital in the Cedar Valley offering Mako SmartRobotics™ for total knee and hip replacement surgery. 

“Mako is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by enabling surgeons to provide each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific anatomy,” said Jodi Geerts, CEO. “Our orthopedic surgeons have information at their fingertips that they’ve never had access to before.”

Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the desired implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. According to clinical studies, this technique allows most people to recover faster with less pain.
