Dr. Chandrasekaran performs the first knee replacement with the Mako SmartRobotics device
A new robot is providing a helping hand to surgeons replacing knees at St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Werribee.
The long-anticipated arrival of the Mako SmartRobotics device took place at the hospital last week, and it’s already busy assisting with orthopaedic surgeries. Funded by well-known philanthropist Alex Cilmi and his family, the Mako SmartRobotics enables orthopaedic surgeons to better tailor hip and knee replacements to their patients, resulting in less blood loss and reduced recovery time after surgery.
