MAKOplasty is a new minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. MAKOplasty, powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, offers a more precise and consistent result for partial knee resurfacing. Watch a brief interview of a patient who recently experienced excellent results from the innovative MAKOplasty procedure performed by Dr. Gary Wexler of Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute. Ask your Physician if MAKOplasty is the best option for you and your osteoarthritis.
Makoplasty is a step forward in knee replacement surgery. Orthopedic surgeons are now able to partially replace diseased portions of the knee in a more natural manner utilizing state-of-the-art robotic techniques. This minimally invasive technique offers patients an easier recovery to their active lifestyles.
MAKOplasty® combines patient-specific three dimensional modeling for pre-surgical planning. During the procedure, the combination of a robotic arm and computer navigation provides the orthopedic surgeon with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback, enabling reproducible precision and optimal positioning of the implants within the knee. It is this level of pinpoint precision and accuracy that helps facilitate optimal implant positioning and alignment to result in a more “natural” knee motion following surgery.
Small incisions….Big Results. This means that patients have smaller incisions, less blood loss, less pain and easier rehabilitation when compared to traditional knee replacement.
