Our Mako hip replacement surgery is meant to help individuals with inflammatory and non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease (DJD). Some of the forms of DJD that surgical robotic technology may help include:

  • Avascular necrosis (AVN)
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Osteoarthritis (OA)
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Clinical studies have shown that patients who underwent procedures using Mako robotic technology have experienced the following benefits:

  • A natural, seamless feel to the joint replacement
  • A reduction of blood loss during surgery
  • Better preservation of healthy bones
  • Increased accuracy of implant placement

Mako Knee Replacements

Mako robotic knee replacement surgery is intended for individuals with mid-to late-stage osteoarthritis and may include partial or total replacement. Robotic technology is used to remove the damaged bone and cartilage with extreme precision to help preserve as much healthy structure as possible during the procedure. Some of the knee replacements we offer using robotic technology include:

  • Bicompartmental knee replacement: During this procedure, the medial region of the knee (inside) and the kneecap are replaced.
  • Patellofemoral knee replacement: During this procedure, the kneecap and area at the lower end of the femur (thigh bone) are replaced.
  • Unicondylar knee replacement: During this procedure, a single area of the knee joint is replaced.
