Dr. Sastry to Chair Stryker’s Robotic Surgery Conference

SEPTEMBER 12, 2018—Dr. Akhil Sastry, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, has been asked to Chair Stryker’s National MAKO Program later this month. He will head the conference in Mahwah, NJ as the leading surgeon there and teach MAKO courses in partial knee, total knee, and total hip surgery to other attending surgeons.

Stryker is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, and their MAKO system is a surgeon-controlled robotic arm that enables accurate alignment and placement of implants.

Sastry began using the MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System in 2016 and was the first surgeon in New Hampshire and Maine to perform a robotic assisted knee replacement. Sastry has been participating in their educational programs throughout the country teaching the full knee replacement on the robotic platform. Though he has taught many courses for Stryker, this will be the first time he will chair a conference for them.

Sastry is also the premier robotic-assisted orthopaedic surgeon at Atlantic Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and has said the robot allows for a level of precision that enables a quick recovery and fewer issues for the patient once fully rehabilitated.

Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is a leading practice on the Seacoast for orthopaedics and sports medicine. They have offices in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and York, Maine and physicians have full medical staff privileges at both Portsmouth Regional Hospital and York Hospital.
