Total Knee Replacement with Robotic-arm Assisted Technology

Our orthopaedic specialists are at the forefront of the latest advancements in total knee replacement surgery – including robotic-arm assisted technology.

This innovative approach, called Mako total knee replacement, provides patients with a personalized surgical solution based on their diagnosis and anatomy. Advantages over traditional total knee replacement surgery include:

  • Less invasive procedure
  • More precise alignment of the implant
  • Reduction in the amount of bone removed
  • More natural circular motion
  • Less disruption to soft tissue around the knee

How Does it Work?

A CT scan of the knee joint generates a 3-D model of the patient’s unique anatomy. The orthopaedic surgeon uses this model along with sophisticated software to create each patient’s pre-operative plan. In the operating room, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage, and insert a total knee implant. The Mako system allows the surgeon to make adjustments, if necessary, during the procedure.
