Lyons Township students operate robotic arm in knee replacement

Demonstration at La Grange Hospital

6th October, 2018

A gathering of Lyons Township High School understudies took an interest Thursday in an exhibition of robot-helped medical procedure at La Grange Memorial Hospital.

The agreement: “It was extremely cool.”

The understudies are a piece of the school’s Future Healthcare Professionals Club, which consolidates finding out about vocations in the medicinal and wellbeing fields with network benefit.

Dr. T. Andrew Ehmke, an orthopedic specialist, let every understudy attempt the Mako mechanical arm-helped medical procedure framework without a sharp edge on a plastic leg.

“It was cool how exact it was, said Maria Larmon, a lesser from La Grange. “It wiped out mistake. When you held (the automated arm), it had an inclination that it knew where to go.”

“It was extremely simple to move,” said Ella Gleason, a sophomore from La Grange Highlands.

Ehmke clarified the presentation of mechanical technology in medical procedure has disposed of a considerable measure of the mystery.

Before he goes into the working room, a 3D virtual model of the patient’s knee or hip is made in light of a CT sweep of the joint. The model is stacked into the Mako framework programming and a pre-agent plan is concocted for the patient’s individual life systems.

The specialist knows ahead of time which measure fake joint he will require.

Specialists already did not know precisely what estimate the patient would require until the point when they opened the patient in the working room.

Amid the medical procedure, the specialists can see where and how they are cutting the bone on a 3D picture of the patient’s joint on a PC screen. The program in the framework won’t enable the specialist to make a cut outside the zone he modified.
