Hip replacements and knee replacement are very common with a growing senior population with varied outcomes. The use of robots to perform or assist in these surgeries may be the solution to eliminate human error and are being used more frequently. 

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology also called Mako for short, is being used in hospitals across the country and all over the world. The robotic surgical assistant has performed over 300,000 surgeries for joint replacements. Surgeons are using 3D mapping of the patients anatomy to plan out the procedure and the instructions are programmed into Mako by the surgeons. For more details check out the article here:
