On Monday, March 27, 2023, Dr. Bryan Lawless completed 1,000 Mako robotic assisted surgeries for Elliot Orthopaedics at Elliot Hospital. Dr. Lawless first began utilizing the Mako robot for total and partial knee replacement surgeries in autumn of 2017.
Dr. Lawless said, “Even after one-thousand knee replacements, I continue to be excited about this technology and how it can consistently and reliably individualize this procedure for our vast and sometimes unique patient population.”
“We are committed to bringing together the latest technologies and highly skilled surgeons for the best in surgical services. The care that Dr. Lawless has now provided to one thousand patients utilizing the Stryker Mako Robot is making a large impact on our community. We are proud to be here to help many more patients who need us in the future,” said Beverly Primeau, Vice President of Surgical and Procedural Services for Elliot Health System.
