Fascinating technology


Innovative robotic technology allows surgeons to customize procedures for each patient in a State-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgery Center in Torrance, California.

TORRANCE, Calif., June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Goodlife Surgery Center is the first and only South Bay Ambulatory Surgical Center to offer Mako SmartRobotics™. This breakthrough in joint replacement surgery is transforming the way total knee replacements are performed.

Total knee arthroplasties in United States are expected to increase by 189% by 2030, but studies have shown that approximately 20% of patients are dissatisfied after conventional surgery. Mako Total Knee combines Stryker’s advanced robotic technology with its clinically successful Triathlon Total Knee System, which allows surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased precision and accuracy.

Mako SmartRobotics™ consists of three unique components: 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop™ haptic technology, and insightful data analysis. In clinical studies, Mako Total Knee has demonstrated that patients may experience less pain, less need for opioid painkillers, less need for inpatient physiotherapy, reduced length of hospital stay, and improved knee flexion and soft tissue protection compared to manual techniques.

“With Mako SmartRobotics™ for total knee replacement, I know more about my patients than ever before and can make fewer incisions. For some patients, this can mean less soft tissue damage; for others, better bone preservation.” says dr. jonathan frank, MD of the Goodlife Surgery Center. “Mako’s 3D CT allows me to create a personalized plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy, all before entering the operating room. During surgery, I can validate this plan and make any necessary adjustments “, while guiding the robotic arm to execute that plan. It’s exciting to be able to bring this transformative technology to the full range of joint replacement services to perform total knee, hip and partial knee replacement surgeries.”

“We are proud to be the first and only outpatient surgery center in our area to deliver this very advanced robotic technology,” said Adam Weitzman, MD, owner and medical director of Goodlife Surgery Center. “This addition to our range of orthopedic services once again demonstrates our commitment to providing the community with exceptional health care.”

At the Goodlife Surgery Center, you are our priority. Our center is certified to accommodate the surgeries and post-operative care you need.
