Recently, Central Indiana Orthopedics and Stryker visited Victory Field to educate those suffering with painful hip or knee arthritis about the benefits of Mako SmartRobotics™, an innovative technology used during hip and knee replacement surgery that results in a more accurate procedure, less pain and a quicker recovery.
Earlier this week, Dr. David Graybill, Mako-certified joint replacement surgeon, joined an Indy Style segment to share how SmartRobotics™ technology works and how Stryker has teamed up with the Indianapolis Indians to share how this technology can get you back in the game, or whatever you love doing.
“Arthritis is a growing problem and can be associated with several factors including an increase in age, multiple injuries or trauma and/or family history or genetics,” Dr. Graybill said. “With much of the population, especially Baby Boomer generation, remaining active in middle age and beyond, we are seeing an increased burden on individuals with significant hip and knee arthritis.”
Mako SmartRobotics™ is both a planning and surgical tool that enables our patients to have a more predictable experience when undergoing joint replacement surgery. The surgeon uses this technology to map out a personalized surgical plan using a 3D CT-based planning software so they can know more about your anatomy to carry out a personalized joint replacement procedure.
“Hip and knee replacement has the opportunity to really improve a person’s quality of life,” Dr. Graybill said. “I’ve had both of my knees replaced with this technology, and I did great. I was off narcotics in a couple days, back to operating at four weeks and was able to go hiking on fairly aggressive trails at five weeks.”
SmartRobotics™ Stadium at Victory Field
On July 15, a few of our Mako-certified joint replacement surgeons joined Stryker’s interactive booth, SmartRobotics™ Stadium, at Victory Field so Indianapolis Indians’ fans could learn more about the technology and participate in fun activities for the whole family.
