What Should You Know About Robotic Surgery?
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is a cutting-edge technology in joint replacement. It enables patients to have a more predictable and successful surgical experience with joint replacement surgery. Many of our orthopedic surgeons offer robotic-arm assisted total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements with Stryker’s Mako System. This highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed.
Choosing a robotic procedure gives you an added level of precision. The robot uses computer calculation and precision measurements to give you the highest level of natural fit. When the joint fits together with a high level of precision, you will feel a more normal fit as you recover. Most are not even aware of the artificial joint after the healing period.
Just remember… a robotic surgery is not performed by the robot! The robot is an advanced tool, like many in the surgery suite. The doctor’s knowledge, experience, and training all contribute to his ability to get the most from robotic surgery.
ROBOTIC TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Total Knee application is a knee replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy.
ROBOTIC PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Partial Knee application is a treatment option designed to treat joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. By selectively targeting only the part of the knee damaged by osteoarthritis, surgeons can resurface the diseased portion of the knee, while helping to spare the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding the knee joint.

ROBOTIC TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT
Total Hip application is a treatment option for adults who suffer from degenerative joint disease of the hip. During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm during bone preparation to prepare the hip socket and position the implant according to the pre-determined surgical plan.
