Robotic-Assisted Knee and Hip Replacement Benefits Patients
Combines Expertise with Robotic Precision
Robotic-assisted partial knee, total knee and total hip surgery combines technologic precision with surgeons’ expertise, which benefits patients and may result in quicker recovery and less pain.
Mako SmartRobotics™ is a state-of-the-art solution for many suffering from painful arthritis of the hip or knee. Mako uses 3D CT-based planning software so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy to create a personalized surgical plan. This 3D model is used to plan and assist your surgeon in performing your joint replacement.
During the procedure, your surgeon has a 360-degree view of your musculoskeletal system, and the technology connects your surgeon’s hands to the computer to simulate touch and minimize damage to bone and soft tissue.
Benefits of robotic-assisted surgery:
- Helps preserve healthy bone and soft tissue
- May result in less post-operative pain than manual techniques
- Produces minimal blood loss and a smaller scar
- May provide a quicker recovery and shorter hospital stay
