Mako™ Partial Knee Replacement
The Mako procedure is a partial knee replacement enabled by robotic arm technology that allows the surgeon to perform surgery precisely through a smaller incision as compared to standard manual procedures. Surgeons use the robotic arm system to precisely place an implant that has been selected for your knee.
Mako Robotic Knee Replacement is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage Osteoarthritis. Unlike other more invasive procedures Mako can often be performed through a four to six-inch incision over your knee with small incisions in both your thigh bone (femur) and shin (tibia). Additionally, the preservation of your own natural bone and tissue along with more ideal patient specific implant positioning may also result in a more natural feeling knee.
During the procedure, the surgeon will remove the diseased portion of the knee, sparing the patients healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again.
