We are part of our communities - and our communities are part of us.

We're inviting bright students - like you - here in Gwinnett and Walton County, to help us name our robot!

What is the Robot?

Eastside Medical Center is celebrating the addition of the Mako surgical robot to our robot family! The Mako is a robotic-arm assisted technology that helps orthopedic surgeons provide patients with a personalized surgical experience. Robotic surgery offers patients significantly less pain and scarring, a shorter hospital stay, and a quicker return to daily activities.
