Mako SmartRobotics™ Hip Replacement
Mako SmartRobotics™ Hip Replacement
Stryker’s Mako System is the first and only SmartRobotics™ System that can be used across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements. We’re proud to be one of the first surgery centers in Los Angeles to offer this highly advanced robotic technology. Mako is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by enabling surgeons to provide each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy.

Why Choose Mako SmartRobotics™?
Mako SmartRobotics™ combines three unique components – 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop™haptic technology and insightful data analytics++– into one platform that has shown better outcomes for your total knee, total hip and partial knee patients compared to manual surgery.3,4,10,11
Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical planand identify the desired implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intraoperatively and assists them in executing bone resections.
Mako Robotic- Arm Assisted Surgery enables surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience and offers them a leadership advantage in our evolving healthcare environment. Since 2007, more than 300,000 total procedures, including total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements, have been performed with Mako across 26 countries worldwide.8
