Bolivar, Mo.-based Citizens Memorial Hospital is among the first hospitals in southwest Missouri to install the Mako robot for joint replacements, according to the Bolivar Herald-Free Press.

Developed by Stryker, the Mako system assists surgeons in planning  procedures and guides them through the plan intraoperatively.

Costing about $1 million, the device is designed to protect soft tissue and ligaments from damage.

Orthopedic surgeons Jonathan Gray, DO, and Troy Morrison, DO, perform joint replacements with the Mako system at Citizens Memorial Hospital Orthopedic & Spine Center.
