AOH Celebrates 100th Robotic Knee Surgery

by Kristi Spuhler | Oct 02, 2019
Aultman Orrville Hospital recently celebrated a significant milestone – the 100th successful robotic-assisted knee surgery using the Stryker Mako robot. Aultman Orrville is the only hospital in Wayne, Holmes, Stark and Tuscarawas counties that has the system. The first robotic knee surgery at Aultman Orrville was performed on Jan. 22, 2019.

“I am extremely proud of the initial success of this program, and we anticipate continued growth of our orthopedic program,” said Angela Caldwell, chief nursing officer and chief operations officer.

With knee replacements in the United States expected to increase nearly 200 percent by 2030, the robot is designed with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery.

Aultman Orrville will be holding two community-wide HealthTalks with information about the robotic knee replacement surgery. Both HealthTalks will feature orthopedic surgeon Steven A. Widmer, M.D. The first HealthTalk will be held on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. at Keim Lumber, located at 4465 State Route 557. The second HealthTalk will be held on Nov. 13 at 6 p.m. in the hospital’s Community Room.
