Mako is backed by more than 50 published peer reviewed clinical publications, plus more than 350 scientific abstracts accepted at peer reviewed scientific conferences. Over 100,000 total Mako procedures have been performed to-date.2
Patient-specific pre-operative plan enables more accurate implant positioning.3-7 CT data is segmented to create a 3D model of the patient’s bony anatomy. An individualized pre-operative plan is created and reviewed with you prior to the Mako procedure.
Surgeon-controlled intra-operative adjustments can be made to optimize implant placement.8 Kinematic and soft tissue data are collected intra-operatively and applied to the virtual CT model.
You can review the pre-op plan and can modify it if necessary based on the intra-operative data to virtually balance the joint and achieve individualized placement.
You can execute the individualized intra-operative plan using robotic-arm assisted bone preparation to achieve functional implant positioning.
A retrospective analysis of the OptumInsight commercial claims database (2013-2015) by Baker Tilly, LLP, at the request of Stryker, demonstrated that lower all-cause readmission rates associated with Mako Partial Knee procedures in the database population translated to 40% lower readmission costs @ 30 days and 66% lower readmission costs @ 90 days, compared to manual partial knee surgery – a savings per episode of $14,958 @ 90 days.9
