Robotic surgery is surgery that is performed with the assistance of a robotic surgical system.
Catholic Health operates with the MAKO Medical Robot (used for partial knee replacements) and the daVinci® Surgical System.
The MAKO Medical Robot is powered by MAKO’s RIO™ robotic arm system which allows for precision in performing partial knee resurfacing. Implants can be optimally aligned and positioned to ensure the longest benefit.
The daVinci® Surgical System, used to perform multiple procedures, has three robotic arms, which are inserted into three small incisions on the body. These arms hold surgical instruments and a camera. Sitting at a computer console, the surgeon guides the movement of the robotic arms and is able to operate with more precision and with better range of motion.
