Latest Mako Tech Fleshes Out Stryker's Robotic Joint Replacement Line But Cost Critics Still There

Executive Summary

Stryker launched the Mako robotic arm-assisted total knee arthroplasty system at last week's AAOS annual meeting, making the company the first to offer a surgical robotic technology that covers the total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements. Critics, however, say the clinical outcomes do not necessarily justify the costs. Meanwhile, Stryker's orthopedic rivals, Zimmer Biomet and Smith & Nephew, also sought to highlight their own robotic offerings.
