How Mako Robotic Surgery Works

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 joint will be created. This 3D model is then used to pre-plan and assist in performing your joint replacement. 

In the operating room, surgeons use the personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The Mako system guides your surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps to provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

Are you a candidate for robotic joint surgery?

Each patient is unique, and can experience joint pain for different reasons. It’s important to talk to us about the reason for your knee or hip pain so you can understand the treatment options available to you. 

Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body. It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their knee or hip pain.

If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako partial knee or total hip replacement, which may provide you with relief from your pain. 

We offer Mako robotic-arm assisted technology procedures for: 

  • Partial Knee Replacement

  • Total Hip Replacement

  • Total Knee Replacement
