Robotic-arm assisted surgery: market leadership with Stryker

 Over 70,000 robotic-arm assisted hip & knee procedures
 - 16,500+ in 2015; >700 active surgeon users
 - Over 1500 surgeons attended cadaveric and saw bones training courses
 - The global market leader in robotic-arm assisted PKA
 Patient specific 3D planning & Robotic-Arm Assisted execution:
 - CT derived, patient-specific 3-D modeling enables accurate planning of implant size,
orientation and alignment preoperatively
 - Real-time intra-operative adjustments allow for more correct knee kinematics and
soft-tissue balance prior to resection4
 - In a cadaveric study, has been shown to provide excellent accuracy and precision
with regard to planned cup position, leg length, and offset5
 - Allows single stage reaming for the hip
