Partial Knee Replacement and Total Hip Replacement with MAKOplasty 

Prior to undergoing the MAKOplasty procedure, a 3D model is created from a CT scan of the knee. This image allows the surgeon to develop the best plan for positioning the implant in each patient. Using a specialized software program, the surgeon can test the plan and make adjustments as needed. The final plan is then programmed into the system, and a safe zone for bone removal is created. During the procedure, the surgeon remains in control of the robotic arm, but the system software ensures that the safety zone is maintained and implants are placed accurately and safely.

 

Partial Knee Replacement with MAKOplasty 

For patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, partial knee replacement spares the healthy bone and ligaments, replacing only the diseased portion. This procedure is performed using a robotic arm system known as the MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing procedure, and is an advanced treatment option that enables the surgeon to optimize through greater accuracy. Typical manual procedures require larger incisions that present more challenges, especially in terms of implant placement, which is a key factor in the life expectancy of knee implants.

During the procedure, the surgeon remains in control of the robotic arm, but the system software ensures that the safety zone is maintained and implants are placed accurately and safely.

 

Beyond increased consistency and optimized surgical results during the partial knee replacement procedure, MAKOplasty leads to less pain, a more natural feeling knee, and shorter recovery times than total knee resurfacing.

 

Total Hip Replacement with MAKOplasty

MAKOplasty's robotic arm system for total hip replacement is a good option for patients with inflammatory or non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease – especially those who do not respond to medications and other non-surgical treatments. This hyper-accurate implant placement can reduce wear and dislocation of the implant, and ensures a much greater level of accuracy than manual procedures.

 

To prepare for the surgery, a CT scan of the hip is used to create a 3D model of the patient's unique hip structure. The surgeon then uses this model to develop and test a plan for the hip replacement. While remaining in control of the robotic arm throughout the procedure, the surgeon is able to position the implants with increased accuracy and optimize results.

 

When hip implants are placed accurately, patients have more consistency in leg length and experience decreased risk of impingement and dislocation, while the life expectancy of the hip replacement is improved.

 

For partial knee replacement and total hip replacement procedures, MAKOplasty leads to optimized surgical results and improved outcomes for patients suffering from degenerative joint disease and early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. This breakthrough solution greatly improves the accuracy of surgical procedures and is a treatment option that addresses the pain, stiffness, and other complications associated with knee and hip conditions.

How MAKOplasty procedure works

 

It all Starts with a CT scan of your joint. Then 3D virtual model is generated a 3D of your unique anatomy. The virtual model is loaded into the Mako software and then used to create a personalized pre-operative plan.

 

During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm while preparing the hip socket and positioning the implant based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the Mako system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

 

After surgery, your surgeon, nurses and physical therapists will set goals with you to get you back on the move. They will closely monitor your condition and progress. Your surgeon may review an x-ray of your new hip replacement with you.
