Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology (MAKOplasty®)

The Mako Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery technology has transformed joint replacement procedures. This system is used by surgeons to perform total hip, partial and total knee replacements. It first became available in June of 2006 and had helped surgeons perform surgical plans more accurately. The Mako System helps surgeons provide patients with a more personalized surgical experience. It also protects soft tissues and ligaments allowing for a quicker recovery and typically lower pain than conventional joint replacements.
