Iowa ASC installs total joint replacement robot

Davenport, Iowa-based Mississippi Valley Surgery Center installed a Mako surgical robot to assist surgeons with total joint replacement procedures, reported Jan. 18.

The surgery center believes it's the first facility in its region to install the Mako robot.

Robert Cagle, MD, joined the surgery center to serve as director of robotic surgery. He has performed more than 300 robotic-assisted total joint replacement procedures throughout his career.

Dr. Cagle comes to the Iowa surgery center after practicing in San Jose, Calif.

The Mako robot combines presurgical imaging with intraprocedural guidance to ensure implants are placed precisely.
