MAKO Robotic Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery
Hip, knee, or shoulder joint replacement surgery may be considered when joint pain limits your everyday activities such as walking and bending, sitting or standing for long periods, or stiffness in your leg that limits your ability to lift or move your limb. Joint replacements are artificial joints that are designed to replace the damaged or diseased areas of cartilage in order to mimic the function of a healthy human joint. MAKO Robotic Assisted technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy.
What to Expect with Robotic Assisted Surgery:
- It is important to understand that the surgery is performed by the surgeon who guides the robotic-arm during surgery to precisely align and position the implanted joint. The Robotic-arm does not make decisions on its own or move without direct surgeon guidance.
- A 3-D model of your joint is made and used to personalize your surgery.
- The surgical plan is made well before your surgery based on a CT Scan of your hip or knee.
- A customized treatment plan helps to get you back to your active lifestyle as quickly and safely as possible.
