561 knee resurfacing procedures were performed using the company's robotic system and implants in the fourth quarter of 2009, up 34% from the third quarter and 181% from Q4 2008, Mako said in its March 8 earnings report for 2009. Also, seven new RIO robotic arm systems were installed during the quarter, bringing the total installed base to 36. Mako reported $8.9 million in revenue for the quarter, up from $1 million in the prior-year period.
