MRMC recently invested in two Stryker Mako Systems, which combine 3D imaging technology with a robotic arm that is controlled by the physician during surgery. Using virtual 3D modeling, this system allows the surgeon to create a patient’s surgical plan prior to surgery based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy while also allowing any necessary adjustments during surgery.

During the seminar, Drs. McCall and Shirley will discuss the differences and similarities between robotic and traditional joint replacement and how to decide which surgery to choose based on the specific patient’s condition and joint anatomy. In addition, they will address the causes of joint degeneration, treatment options and when the timing is right for joint replacement.
