Mako Robotic
Arm Assisted Knee Replacement

If your knee pain has become a constant limitation and conservative treatment has proven ineffective, it may be time to consider a knee replacement.

The knee replacement specialists at TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine utilize Stryker’s Mako Technology at the hospital and in our outpatient surgery center to perform both partial and total knee replacements. Talk to your physician to determine if you might be a candidate.

How Does Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Surgery Work?

The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System uses applications for total and partial knee replacement to help your surgeon plan and execute a joint replacement specific to your individual needs. 

  1. Personalized Surgical Plan
    Before surgery, a CT scan of your knee is taken to develop a 3D virtual model of your unique joint. Your surgeon uses this model to evaluate your bone structure, disease severity, joint alignment and even the surrounding bone and tissue, so he or she can determine the optimal size, placement, and alignment of your implant.
  2. Range-of-Motion Assessment
    Throughout your procedure, Mako provides real-time data to your surgeon. This allows him or her to continuously assess the movement and tension of your new joint, and adjust your surgical plan as needed.
  3. Arthritic Bone Removal
    In the operating room, your surgeon guides Mako’s robotic arm to remove the arthritic bone and cartilage from the knee. A virtual boundary provides tactile resistance to help the surgeon stay within the boundaries defined in your surgical plan.
  4. Implant Placement
    With the diseased bone gone, your implant is placed into the knee joint. Then it’s off to the recovery room to begin your journey to strengthening your new joint.

If only one compartment of your knee joint is damaged (due to injury or osteoarthritis), you might be a candidate for partial knee replacement instead of total knee replacement. See how the Partial Knee Application for the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System can help to personalize your partial knee replacement procedure.

If all three compartments of your knee joint are damaged (due to injury or osteoarthritis), you might be a candidate for total knee replacement. See how the Total Knee Application for the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System can help to personalize your total knee replacement procedure.
