Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Surgery is an innovative solution for arthritis of the knee or hip.

Using a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy and a robotic arm, Mako helps surgeons plan and perform your joint replacement surgery.

Smaller incision with less scarring

Shorter downtime & faster recovery

More natural feeling joint after surgery

Less implant wear and loosening

Total Hip Replacement

A total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty) involves a surgeon removing the arthritic ball end of the femur (top of thigh bone) and inserting a metal component (a stem) into the bone. The surgeon also replaces the hip socket with an acetabular cup lined with durable polyethylene plastic.
Mako Total Hip is for people with:

Severe hip pain or stiffness resulting from: noninflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular necrosis), rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis

Those who haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, like bracing, medication or joint fluid supplements

Total Knee Replacement & Partial Knee Replacement

During total knee replacement (also called total knee arthroplasty), your surgeon removes the damaged surfaces of the knee joint and replaces them with metal and plastic components referred to as the prosthesis or implant. The implant is designed to replace the function of a healthy knee.
If you’ve caught the arthritic damage early, you may be eligible for a partial knee replacement. This is where the disease has not progressed to all 3 compartments of the knee, allowing the surgeon to replace fewer parts.
Mako Total Knee and Partial Knee is for people with:

Severe knee pain or stiffness resulting from: noninflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular necrosis), rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis

Those who haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, like bracing, medication or joint fluid supplements

In addition to the above, Mako Partial Knee is for people with:

Early to mid-stage osteoarthritis that doesn’t affect all 3 compartments of knee

A robot’s accuracy. A surgeon’s expertise.

Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body.

It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their knee pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako Knee or Hip replacement, which may provide you with relief from your joint pain.

How Mako Technology works

Mako provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a CT scan of the diseased knee joint is taken. This CT scan is uploaded into the Mako System software, where a 3D model of your knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your total knee replacement.

The surgeon guides the robotic-arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage within the pre-defined area and the Mako System helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized pre-operative plan was made.

It’s important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopedic surgeon, who guides the robotic-arm during the surgery to position the implant in the joint. The robotic-arm does not perform surgery or move without the surgeon guiding the robotic-arm. The Mako System also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
