Powered by the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative and targetted treatment option used by our surgeons to resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. The machine allows for consistently reproducible precision and this helps us secure the joint implant in the most ideal position. Once healed, your knee is able to move smoothly again.
Who Is a Good Candidate for the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Resurfacing Procedure?
Typically, MAKO Patients share the following characteristics:
- Knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee and/or under the knee cap
- Start-up knee pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position
- Failure to respond to non-surgical treatments or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication
