Mako Overview

Mako Overview

Stryker acquired Mako Surgical Corporation in December 2013 with the goal of transforming the orthopaedic industry. The acquisition combines Stryker's market-leading implants enabled by Mako's proprietary robotic-arm assisted technology. The current Mako System offers Total Hip, Partial Knee and Total Knee arthroplasty applications.

Clinical Success

Clinical Success

Significant primary clinical research conducted:

  • 65+ peer-reviewed clinical publications
  • 350+ scientific abstracts

Mako PKA resulted in 1% Revision Rate and 92% Patient Satisfaction at 2 Years7.

Mako robotic-arm assisted PKA resulted in lower pain at day 7 and more accurate implant placement than manual PKA in a randomised control trial8.

Mako robotic-arm assisted THA resulted in higher Harris Hip Scores and higher UCLA Activity Scores compared to manual THA at minimum 1-year follow-up9.

Mako robotic-arm assisted TKA resulted in more accurate bone resections and implant placement and less soft tissue damage than manual TKA in a cadaveric study10,11.
