Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement

If hip and knee arthritis are interfering with your quality of life, your painful days outnumber your pain free days, and you have failed a reasonable course of conservative treatment, then you may be a candidate for a partial or total knee or a hip replacement.

Utilizing 3D CT-radiography, MAKO SmartRobotics allows the treating surgeon to plan your partial or total joint replacement from a 3D computer model that is linked to your live anatomy during surgery. The robotic-assisted technology allows for precision of implant placement less than 0.5mm. This technology has proven to preserve your healthy bone and preserve soft tissue. (1, 2) Combining this cutting-edge technology with minimally invasive and muscle sparing approaches helps to improve functioning and decrease pain in the immediate postoperative period. (3)
