Dr. Sastry leads international webinar on Advances of Robotics & Joint Replacement Surgery
PORTSMOUTH —Dr. Akhil Sastry, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, will lead a live webinar hosted by Stryker on “The Advances of Robotics & Joint Replacement Surgery” on Tuesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 20 from 4 to 5 p.m.
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.
This webinar will be broadcast to more than a dozen countries, viewed by more than 1,000 attendees comprising of surgeons and hospital administrators.
Sastry has taught and chaired multiple MAKO courses for Stryker nationally. He 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. He is also the first Master Surgeon in Robotic Surgery in New England designated by the Surgical Review Corporation. This accreditation distinguishes Sastry from many other surgeons by providing the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Sastry has been participating in Stryker’s educational programs for years, teaching full knee, partial knee and total hip replacement on the robotic platform.
Sastry is also the premier robotic-assisted orthopaedic surgeon at Atlantic Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. He states that 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, with offices in Portsmouth and York, Maine. Their physicians have full medical staff privileges at both Portsmouth Regional Hospital and York Hospital.
