WHAT MAKES MAKOPLASTY UNIQUE?
» MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure for those suffering with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. It is performed using the proven robotic arm technology of the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System.
» MAKOplasty enables surgeons to accurately resurface only the diseased portion of the knee, saving as much of the original knee as possible — including healthy bone and ligaments. This minimally invasive approach, combined with a patient-specific surgical plan and more accurate implant placement, results in a more natural feeling knee compared with total knee replacement.
» MAKOplasty can be performed on any one of the three knee compartments: The inside (medial), behind the kneecap (patellofemoral) or outside (lateral) compartments as a unicompartmental procedure, or it can be performed on both the medial and patellofemoral portions of the knee together, which is known as a bicompartmental procedure.
