By Julie A. Vetalice

Stryker Orthopaedics announced the milestone of 100,000 robotic-arm assisted procedures performed in the U.S. using the Mako system in joint reconstruction.

This follows the early 2017 launch of the total knee application for the system, using Stryker's Triathlon implant. Presently, Mako is the only robotic technology that can be used in total and partial knees and total hips. Further, this is an increase from >83,000 procedures performed by the end of 2016. (Of those, >1,400 addressed total knee.)
