Portsmouth, NH – Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine recently held an event with Portsmouth Regional Hospital to showcase the MAKO Robotic-Arm for orthopaedic surgery. Lead by Dr. Akhil Sastry, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics, the evening included a live demonstration of the MAKO Robot followed by an educational session in the hospital’s classroom.

MAKO is the newest addition to robotic surgery at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, and a groundbreaking technique worldwide. In his presentation, Dr. Sastry discussed the customizable procedure for knee and hip replacements, including the benefits of using MAKO.
