SALEM, Ore., Sept. 16,
2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Willamette Surgery Center is the first
ambulatory surgery center in Salem,
Oregon to offer robotic-arm assisted total knee, partial
knee and total hip replacements with Stryker's Mako System. This
highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint
replacement surgery is performed, enabling surgeons to have a more
predictable surgical experience with increased
Willamette Surgery Center's first surgical procedure with Mako
is scheduled for September 21, 2020.
Shane Hess, DO, an orthopedic
surgeon at Hope Orthopedics of Oregon, will be performing the total knee
replacement and says, "Robotic-arm assisted surgery with Mako
technology adds a level of precision never before seen in the field
of hip and knee replacement. Before even making a single bony cut,
we can use the technology to place the implants in a patient
specific manner that allows reproducible and predictable balance of
the joint every time. Ultimately this will allow Hope Orthopedics
of Oregon to provide the very best
care possible to our patients at Willamette Surgery Center."
Dr. Mark Dolan, orthopedic
surgeon at Hope Orthopedics adds, "With Mako, we can provide each
patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their
specific diagnosis and anatomy. Using a virtual 3D model, Mako
allows surgeons to create each patient's surgical plan
pre-operatively before entering the operating room. During surgery,
we can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments while
guiding the robotic-arm to execute that plan. It's exciting to be
able to offer this transformative technology across the joint
replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and
partial knee replacements."
"We are proud to be the first surgery center to offer this
highly advanced robotic technology in our area," said Lorissa Addabbo, CEO of Hope Orthopedics and
Willamette Surgery Center. "The addition of Mako to our orthopedic
service line further demonstrates our commitment to provide the
community with outstanding healthcare."
