EDMOND, Okla. (OBV) – A state-of-the-art robot is revolutionizing orthopedic surgery at INTEGRIS Health Edmond.
INTEGRIS Health Edmond successfully integrated Stryker Mako, a cutting-edge surgical robot into its orthopedic surgical operations, and the results have been astounding, according to INTEGRIS doctors.
The surgical team at the INTEGRIS in Edmond has used the Stryker Mako in a series of surgeries and the results have been remarkable, according to INTEGRIS Health officials.
INTEGRIS officials noted that patients who underwent surgeries that utilized Stryker Mako experienced shorter hospital stays, minimized post-operative pain and faster return to their daily activities.

Using the Stryker Mako provides the following key advantages to surgical procedures:
- Precision: The robot’s high-definition imaging and precise instruments allow surgeons to perform intricate procedures with unparalleled accuracy, minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
- Minimized Invasiveness: Smaller incisions mean reduced scarring and a quicker return to normal activities for patients.
- Enhanced Visualization: Surgeons benefit from 3D visualization, providing an immersive and detailed view of the surgical site.
- Improved Ergonomics: Surgeons can operate comfortably, reducing fatigue and enhancing their ability to focus during lengthy procedures.
David Rhodes, M.D., a fellowship-trained board-certified orthopedic surgeon at INTEGRIS Health Medical Group Orthopedics Edmond, is an expert in shoulder, knee and hip replacement surgery. He said the Stryker Mako has been transformational.
