da Vinci X Surgical Systems
Robotic surgery is the biggest advancement in surgical care in the last two decades. In 2018, Memorial Healthcare was one of just two hospitals in the country to receive the upgraded da Vinci robot. The technology allows surgeons to perform procedures with enhanced precision and much smaller incisions than traditional surgery. To date, Memorial Healthcare surgeons have performed over 1,000 procedures with da Vinci surgical equipment. Patients can learn more about the da Vinci X robotic surgical system here.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
Stryker’s Mako SmartRobotics is an assistive technology for orthopedic surgery that uses 3D planning software to create a personalized surgical plan for each patient. Providers can perform surgery with an increased level of precision, leading to less invasive procedures and faster recovery. As hip and knee injuries from normal wear and tear, overuse, or athletics lead to an increasing need for joint replacement surgery, the Mako robotic arm can help patients of all ages.
The Mako System’s robotic-arm assisted technology can be used for:
- Total hip replacement
- Total knee replacement
- Partial knee replacement
During surgery, the surgeon utilizes the 3D plan to perform the procedure using the robotic arm. This highly advanced robotic technology enables surgeons to have increased accuracy and creates a more predictable surgical experience.
Memorial Healthcare also offers facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as advanced oncological surgery.
