Dr.Brandon Gough Highlights Joint Health & Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship

Did you know one in two adults will develop symptoms of knee osteoarthritis during their lives? That means half of the hundreds of golf fans who descended on Phoenix for the Charles Schwab Cup Championship may be struggling with hip or knee pain.

To help tournament goers learn about their options, Stryker activated The Mobility Zone® at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship last weekend. The premiere on-site destination to learn about hip and knee pain, The Mobility Zone is the go-to spot for learning about joint health.

Dr. Brandon Gough, an orthopaedic surgeon at Western Orthopaedic Institute, stopped by The Mobility Zone to discuss steps people can take to enhance their joint health and benefits of Stryker's Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery. He emphasized the importance of regular exercise to help strengthen muscles and alleviate joint pain. Dr. Gough also shared why he chooses Mako Technology for knee and hip replacement surgeries. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient's unique bone anatomy.

Dr. Gough also noted that having an arthritic knee or hip doesn't mean your days of staying active or playing sports like golf are over. Joint replacement surgery is designed to improve a patient's quality of life and new technologies like Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery are at the cutting edge. If you are struggling with joint pain, it's never too late to talk with your physician about a plan.
