Today Avala announced it has received its third orthopedic robot, the Stryker Mako Robotic System. Avala is one of only twelve hospitals in the world to have three Mako Robots.
Avala’s experienced robotic surgeons are part of an elite training group specializing in the Mako Robotic Technology which provides shorter, less traumatic procedures with lower radiation exposure and more accurate placement of implants. Having this much experience, the Avala surgeons provide better outcomes to the patient.
Avala’s Mako surgeons provide patients undergoing hip or knee replacements a more personalized surgical experience based on their anatomy. A CT scan is performed at Avala Imaging Center and used for precise placement of the implant during surgery.
Having this type of innovative robotic technology at Avala, demonstrates the hospital’s dedication to quality and patient-centered healthcare.
