Hirslanden Klinik Permanence and Salem-Spital are the first hospitals in Switzerland to use the Mako robotic-arm assisted surgical technique. This procedure is a new treatment option for knee and hip joint replacement. With the aid of a robotic arm, surgeons are now able to implant a total or partial prosthesis with greater accuracy than ever before.

This innovation enables surgeons to perform individually planned and 3D-assisted surgery based on the specific diagnosis and anatomy of the patient. The Mako system is the first robotic arm technology that can be used for implanting total or partial prostheses for the knee, and for implanting hip prostheses. Precision and patient safety are central to this new surgical technique.
