MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing and MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement are
enabled by the surgeon controlled RIO® robotic arm system, offering increased accuracy to
optimize surgical results.
MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing
Partial Knee Replacement is a treatment option for adults living with early-to mid-stage
osteoarthritis (OA) that has not progressed to all three compartments of the knee.
MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing is an advanced treatment option. It is powered
by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows the surgeon to
perform surgery accurately through a smaller incision as compared to manual procedures.
By selectively targeting the part of the knee damaged by OA, surgeons can resurface the
knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. Partial knee resurfacing may be done unicompartmentally (when only one area of the joint needs resurfacing) or bicompartmentally (when two areas of the joint need to be resurfaced). Both options maintain the surrounding healthy bone and ligaments, unlike total knee replacements.
A unicompartmental partial knee replacement may be used when only one compartment area of the joint is damaged
It is also possible to perform a bicompartmental partial knee replacement if two areas are damaged
MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing Benefits May Include:
Preservation of healthy tissue and bone — only diseased portions are removed
Optimal implant positioning
A more natural feeling knee following surgery
More rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay compared to traditional total knee Resurfacing surgery
MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement
MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement is a breakthrough solution for adults suffering
from painful degenerative joint disease of the hip who need a total hip replacement. It
is powered by the surgeon-controlled RIO® Robotic Arm System, which enables more accurate
implant placement, which may reduce complications, such as implant wear and dislocation.
MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement Benefits May Include:
Accurate placement of your hip implant, which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
Decreased risk of impingement and dislocation, this may improve the life expectancy of the hip replacement
