Because it is so precise, this surgery allows for more accurate implant positioning. This can result in a more natural feeling after surgery. Additionally, this type of surgery offers improved safety and a reduced risk of injury to adjacent tissues. Robotic-assisted surgery also involves small incisions – which can mean a quicker recovery, a shorter hospitalization, and less pain.

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a CT scan of the diseased joint is taken. This CT scan is uploaded into the Mako System software, where a 3D model of your knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your partial knee replacement.
In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides the robotic arm within the pre-defined area and the Mako System, which helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized pre-operative plan was created.
