Aultman Orrville Hospital is introducing Stryker’s Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee application to Stark County residents during an informational session on June 18 at 6 p.m. at Aultman West in Massillon.

The robotic-arm assisted knee application transforms the way partial and total knee replacements are performed.

“With knee replacements in the United States expected to increase by nearly 200 percent by 2030, we are excited to bring this technology to our patients,” said Angela Caldwell, chief nursing officer and chief operating officer, Aultman Orrville Hospital. “This addition of the robotic-arm assisted surgery demonstrates our commitment to providing the community with the best in health care that is close to home.”

“The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee System creates a personalized surgical plan for each patient based on the specific diagnosis and their individual anatomy,” said Steven A. Widmer, M.D., orthopedic surgery specialist at AOH. “Also, during the procedure, it enables any necessary adjustments as the robotic arm is used while executing the surgical plan. By using the robotic-arm system, AOH has provided the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcome for partial and total knee replacement patients.”
