The procedure is an innovative, robotic-arm assisted alternative to traditional knee and hip replacement surgeries.

Mako Partial Knee replacement and Total Knee replacement are designed to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration and can offer:
  • Improved surgical outcomes resulting in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Less implant wear and loosening
  • Joint resurfacing
  • Bone sparing
  • Smaller incision
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Rapid recovery
Mako Total Hip replacement can offer the following benefits over traditional hip replacement:
  • Accurate placement of the hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, reducing the likelihood of hip dislocation
  • More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together, improving the lifetime of the implant
