Mako robots in 2023: 7 stats to know


The popularity of surgical robots, including Stryker's Mako robot for total joint replacements, is on the rise worldwide, with many systems adding robots and marking significant procedural milestones. 

"I have used the Stryker Mako robot to perform my partial and total knee replacements and total hip replacements (including revisions) for over seven years. I was hesitant at first since it was a new concept. But I can now say that I will never do another joint replacement without this technology," Anthony Melillo, MD, orthopedic surgeon at Houston-based Bay Oaks Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, told Becker's. "Bottom line, robotics in total joints, especially by 2030, will be the standard of care." 

Here are seven key stats to know about Stryker's Mako robot: 

1. Over 1 million Mako procedures have been performed globally to date. 

2. Mako systems have been installed in 35 countries. 

3. Mako systems are in use in all 50 U.S. states. 

4. The robotic arm assisted surgery experience has been available to patients and physicians for 17 years. 

5. The Mako robot has undergone over 330 published, peer reviewed studies. 

6. Mako's robotic portfolio has over 1,500 patents and patent applications established globally. 

7. Mako's insightful data analytics database holds over 1 million patient records.
