The Florida Joint & Spine Institute offers the advanced MAKOplasty system for partial knee replacement surgery. MAKOplasty’s precision comes from the use of a robotically-guided instrumentation that will:
- Enable surgeons to address only the arthritic portion of the knee and tissue.
- Create a better fit for implanted prosthetic devices.
- Keep healthy bone and tissue preserved.
- Reduce recovery time and the length of your hospital stay.
The MAKOplasty system offers many benefits to people suffering from chronic knee pain and conditions.
MAKOplasty is used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. This procedure is less invasive than a total knee replacement and can be just as effective at restoring range of motion
MAKOplasty is an ideal solution for osteoarthritis patients who are in the unicompartmental or bicompartmental stages of knee disease.
MAKOplasty is performed using the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which uses three-dimensional imaging to help create a pre-surgery plan that can then be following with real-time feedback from the instrument, ensuring that the knee joint is resurfaced in the most optimal way. This innovative technology makes a partial knee replacement a more effective procedure, which can make it an option for people who may have been considering a total knee replacement procedure.
MAKOplasty can help patients retain more bone and tissue, making the results feel more natural, as well as allowing for a total knee replacement procedure later if the patient needs further treatment on the joint. Also, the MAKOplasty system can also result in less scarring, with incisions sometimes being as small as 4 inches.
Patients that undergo MAKOplasty can expect quicker recovery times than from other orthopedic knee surgeries. In many cases, patients can walk soon after the surgery, and are able to drive a car and resume many other normal activities within two weeks.
Most MAKOplasty candidates share a few characteristics. They have failed to respond to nonsurgical treatment and anti-inflammatory medication. Most MAKOplasty candidates will experience knee pain during activity or feel stiffness and pain when going from a startup position. If you’re suffering from early to mid-stage osteoarthritis pain in the knee, MAKOplasty could be an option for you.
