MAKOplasty® Partial Knee resurfacing
The MAKOplasty® procedure is a partial knee replacement enabled by robotic technology that allows the surgeon to perform surgery through a smaller incision as compared to standard manual procedures and precisely place an implant that has been selected for your knee.
MAKOplasty is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to midstage Osteoarthritis (OA) in the inner, top, or outer compartments of the knee.
Unlike other more invasive procedures, MAKOplasty can often be performed through a four to six inch incision over your knee with small incisions in both your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin). Additionally, the preservation of your own natural bone and tissue along with more ideal patient specific implant positioning may also result in a more natural feeling knee. And since healthy bone is preserved, patients who undergo MAKOplasty partial knee procedures may still be a candidate for a total knee replacement procedure later in life if necessary.
