How does the MAKO procedure work?

  • MAKOplasty® is an innovative, less invasive new treatment option for people with pain

  • MAKO enables surgeons to accurately target only the diseased portion of the knee or hip, without compromising the healthy bone and tissue surrounding it

  • MAKO facilitates ideal implant positioning to result in a more natural feeling joint.

  • Since all three compartments of the knee are replaced in total knee replacement, it is not always optimal for patients with early to mid-stage OA. For these patients MAKO may be the best solution

  • MAKOplasty customizes the procedure for your unique anatomy

The benefits of the MAKO procedure:

  • Minimally invasive

  • Ligament preserving

  • Bone and tissue sparing

  • Small incision

  • Shorter hospital stay

  • Leads to a more rapid recovery than traditional replacement surgery, with many patients going home the same day.

  • More natural feeling joint post-operatively
