MAKOplasty® is a patient-specific, robotic arm procedure for partial knee replacement, total knee replacement and total hip replacement. It is designed to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration. By targeting only the damaged part of the knee, your surgeon can repair the knee while sparing healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. In hip replacement cases, the robotic arm helps provide unprecedented surgical accuracy. This technology is a proven success, with over 37,000 partial knee replacement surgery cases and 5,500 hip replacement surgery cases already performed nationwide, with tremendous outcomes.
