MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing offers new treatment options for those living with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee, affecting only one or two components of the knee, and who prefer a less invasive surgery and more rapid recovery than total knee arthroplasty.
The procedure is performed through a four to six inch incision over the knee. Tactile, intelligent robotic arm technology and 3-D visualization of the knee guides the surgeon in controlled resurfacing of the pre-defined knee disease, saving as much of the patient's healthy bone and surrounding tissue as possible.
Computer modeling of the patient's pre-surgical plan using CT scan data and, during the procedure, real-time visual, tactile, and auditory feedback facilitates ideal implant positioning and placement. It is this level of planning and surgical accuracy in treating earlier stage knee osteoarthritis that can result in a more natural feeling knee and motion.
In many case, patients are permitted to walk soon after surgery, drive a car within two weeks and return to normal daily activities shortly thereafter.
*Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any knee surgical procedure, including MAKOplasty®. Your doctor can explain these risks and help determine if MAKOplasty® is right for you.
