The St. Elizabeth Healthcare Orthopeadic team offers a new robotic-arm assisted technology for total knee replacement surgeries. At St. Elizabeth, the use of the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System brings exceptional accuracy to the surgery—giving patients less pain and more natural movement right after surgery.
What is Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery?
The robotic-arm assisted surgery technology for total knee replacement allows the orthopedic surgeon to provide patients with a customized surgical experience. The surgeon uses a CT scan of the patient’s knee – taken before the surgery – to provide a three-dimensional (3D) view. This technology allows the surgeon to place the implant more precisely.
Benefits of the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery include:
Making the decision to have any surgery is always difficult, and a robotic-arm assisted surgery is no exception. There are numerous benefits to undergoing a knee replacement with the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, including:
- Less invasive
- More precise placement of implant
- Shorter hospital stays
- More rapid recovery
- More natural-feeling knee
- Better post-surgery motion and mobility
