Stepping Forward: Transforming Orthopedic Surgery

Introducing Robotic Joint Replacement Technology at Sequoia Hospital

Initiative to raise $1.2 million

Sequoia Hospital and its outstanding physicians have a strong commitment to providing the most advanced care for all surgical procedures. Today, significant advancements in joint replacement surgery are transforming how orthopedic procedures are performed. Innovative robotic technology allows surgeons to personalize total and partial knee replacement for every patient.

Sequoia Hospital Foundation’s funding initiative, Stepping Forward: Transforming Orthopedic Surgery, is a new initiative to purchase a Mako SmartRobotics™ system, bringing orthopedic care to the forefront of excellence. With the support of philanthropic funding, the center will implement robotics in knee and hip replacements, advancing technology to maximize patient comfort and healing.

Studies show that Mako SmartRobotics™ offers multiple benefits for patients, including:

  • Less bone and soft tissue damage
  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • Less need for in-patient physical therapy sessions
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Less need for opioid pain medications following the surgery
