Dr. Jared L. Braud And The Stryker Mako Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement
By Super Scout Max Emfinger
For 47 Years, I have been a Football Talent Super Scout and I have always been looking for The Unbelievable “Under The Recruiting Radar Football Talent” For The NFL or For College Football Coaches. When you are a Football Talent Scout, you rarely go to an Office, for work, every day, like most other Business Men, but most of the time, I would be going To Another Football Stadium To Try and find Another Super-Star That is Currently “Under The Recruiting Radar” and then Evaluate Him and Rate and Rank Him.
So on most every Thursday and Friday Night, I would Find The Best High School Football Game, Irregardless of Distance from my Home, and then I would be on The Sideline at The Start of The Game and Searching for That “Under The Radar Super-Star” in that Game.
In Searching for That “Under The Radar Super-Star” I might Walk-Around that Football Stadium Five or Six Times on a Thursday and Friday Night and Some Times on Saturday. While Walking-Around That Stadium for maybe 1,000 or More Times, My Knees got some really “Hard-Work” Toward Some Serious Arthritis.
After 44-Years, I was having a really “Hard-Time” Even-Walking, much less Walking Around a Stadium on a Thursday or Friday Night and all of my All-American Bowl Game Coaches wanted me to have a Couple Knee Replacements. I always knew that The Knee Replacements Might be able To-Help me walk, but I was always afraid that it might “Go-Wrong” and I would not be able to “Even-Walk” and so I kept “Putting-It-Off” Until Later.
Then, after 45-Years, I decided to “Go-Ahead” and have a Knee-Replacement on my Right Knee. I was supposed to have my Surgery on February 12, but one of my Doctors forgot to mail his Approval Info to Doctor Jared Braud, my Knee Replacement Doctor and it caused me to have To Have my Surgery on February 14 which was St Valentines Day.

Dr. Braud is currently accepting new patients at The BROC Office located on The Baton Rouge General Campus on Bluebonnet Blvd. Dr. Braud is trained on The Stryker Mako Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgical System. Dr. Braud is also one of The First Physicians in Baton Rouge to use this technology to perform The Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery at The Baton Rouge General Hospital.
The Stryker Mako Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgical System gives Surgeons More Accuracy when placing Implants and Customizes Surgical Plans based on a patient’s bone anatomy and diagnosis.
“The Stryker Mako Robotic System creates a 3D Model of The Patient’s Knee, said Dr. Braud,” allowing us to Personalize each Surgical Plan.” This technology gives us a Higher Degree of Accuracy And Precision while we guide the Robotic Arm, and at the same time Offers The Patient a Customized Knee Replacement.”
Knee Replacements are one of the most common procedures in The United States and are expected to increase by nearly 700 percent by 2030, said in a news release.
Dr. Braud did a Fabulous Job in Replacing my Right Knee and He Found-Out that my Old Knee was one of The Worst Arthritic Knees that he had ever Seen, but after about 45 Days, I Am Walking with a Brand-New Stryker Mako Robotic Right Knee, But I Am Not Looking Forward To Replacing My Left Knee, Next Year.
