San Ramon Regional Medical Center Now Offering Newest Technology in Total Knee Replacement with Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Application

Oct 1, 2019

Innovative robotic technology allows surgeons to personalize procedures to each patient at San Ramon

Dr. Amir JamaliSan Ramon, Calif. – San Ramon Regional Medical Center is now offering Stryker’s robotic-arm assisted total knee application for use with its Mako System. This latest advancement in joint replacement surgery transforms the way total knee replacements are performed.

Total knee replacements in the United States are expected to increase 673 percent by 2030, yet studies have shown that approximately 30 percent of patients are dissatisfied after conventional surgery. Mako Total Knee combines Stryker’s advanced robotic technology with its clinically proven GetAroundKnee (Triathlon Total Knee System), which has enabled surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy during laboratory testing.

“Mako is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by providing each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy,” said Thomas Peatman, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon at San Ramon Regional Medical Center. “Using a virtual 3D model, the Mako System allows surgeons to create each patient’s surgical plan pre-operatively before entering the operating room. During surgery, the physician 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.”

Dr. Thomas PeatmanThe Mako Total Knee application is a knee replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.

“We are proud to offer this highly advanced robotic technology in our area,” said Ann Lucena, CEO of San Ramon Regional Medical Center. “This addition to our orthopedic services further demonstrates our commitment to provide the community with outstanding healthcare.”
