Stryker announces Mako System’s 1,000th install


Stryker has announced the installation of its 1,000th Mako System, a significant milestone for Mako SmartRobotics™.

There are now more than 1,000 Mako Systems installed across 28 countries and in every state in the contiguous U.S. Introduced in 2006, Mako SmartRobotics™ now has over 14 years of clinical use, with over 350,000 robotic-arm-assisted surgery cases performed worldwide. Mako SmartRobotics™ combines three key components — 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop™ haptic technology and insightful data analytics* — into one platform, which has shown better outcomes for total hip, total knee and partial knee patients.1,2,3

“The installation of the 1,000th Mako is a milestone we are proud of, especially since the full launch of our Total Knee application just happened in 2016,” said Spencer Stiles, Stryker’s group president of Orthopaedics & Spine. “Robotics in orthopaedics is here to stay, and at Stryker we are committed to further advancing this technology.”
