What is Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery?



   Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is a robotic arm assisted partial

   knee resurfacing procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by 

   joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA). 

   MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure

   for those suffering with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the 


Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery partial knee application can:

  • ◎ Enable surgeons to precisely resurface only the arthritic portion of the knee

  • ◎ Preserve healthy tissue and bone

  • ◎ Facilitate optimal implant positioning to result in a more natural feeling knee following surgery

  • ◎ Result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional total knee replacement surgery  

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 femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin). 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.

Robotic System Allows for:

  • ◎ Consistently, Reproducible, Precision

  • ◎ Optimized Implant Alignment, Ligament Tension, and Implant Tracking that can Improve Long Term ◎ Performance

  • ◎ Restoration of each Individual’s Natural Knee Kinematics

  • ◎ The use of Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques

  • ◎ Reduced Surgeon Installation Error
