The latest surgical robotic technology enables surgeons at Mountainside Medical Center to provide personalized surgical experience in the areas of orthopedics, gynecology, bariatric surgery and general surgery.
It is a common misconception that robotic surgery means that a robot replaces the surgeon or diminishes the surgeon’s role. In reality, highly regarded surgeons who pride themselves on taking advantage of the most current technology to achieve the best patient outcomes choose to perform procedures using robotic technology.
We provide advanced surgical options in a comfortable, and safe, community setting. Our robotic surgery program offers:
Surgeons at Mountainside Medical Center use the Mako Robotic Arm for total hip replacement, total knee replacement and partial knee replacement.
The Mako application is an orthopedic replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.
