MAKOplasty Robotic Joint Replacement Surgery

MAKOplasty is an innovative, less invasive option to traditional joint replacement surgery for partial knee and total hip replacements. It is performed using a surgeon-controlled robotic arm system that is designed to enhance stability and increase range of motion. Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in the region to offer this orthopedic robot surgery.

MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing

MAKOplasty Partial Knee ResurfacingMAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA). By selectively targeting the part of your knee damaged by OA, our surgeons can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.

MAKOplasty Partial Knee Advantages

The MAKOplasty procedure may be recommended for patients suffering from unicompartmental or bicompartmental knee disease. Advantages of MAKOplasty include:

  • Enable surgeons to precisely resurface only the arthritic portion of the knee
  • Preserve healthy tissue and bone
  • Facilitate optimal implant positioning to result in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional total knee replacement surgery

MAKOplasty Total Hip Replacement

MAKOplasty Total Hip ReplacementMAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted Total Hip Replacement supported by the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System.

The RIO robotic arm technology provides surgeons with a patient-specific 3-D model to pre-plan your hip replacement. During the procedure, tactile, visual, auditory feedback, and real-time data assists your surgeon in preparing the hip joint and placing the implants in the desired orientation with more accuracy.

MAKOplasty Total Hip Advantages

The MAKOplasty procedure may be recommended for patients suffering from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. Advantages of MAKOplasty include:

  • Facilitates optimal implant placement
  • Enhances stability and mobility
  • Restores an active lifestyle
