Lewis & Clark Outpatient Surgery in Lewiston, Idaho, has begun offering same-day knee replacements using Mako robotic-arm assisted technology, according to a December announcement.

What you should know:

1. Three surgeons with Lewiston Orthopedics — Bryan Beardsley, MD, Timothy Flock, MD and Regan Hansen, MD — are trained to use the ASC's Mako system.

2. The robotic-arm assisted technology enables surgeons to customize preoperative plans for each patient's unique anatomy and provides real-time intraoperative guidance.

3. The Mako offers "better precision, more natural motion and optimal outcomes" for same-day total joint replacement candidates, said Brianne Bender, RN, director of surgery at Lewis & Clark Outpatient Surgery.
