MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing

Partial Knee Resurfacing

MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing, now available at Manatee Memorial Hospital, is a highly advanced, minimally invasive surgical system that allows surgeons to treat knee conditions with a new level of precision using 3D computer imaging. This means a more natural range of motion, rapid relief from pain, shorter hospital stays and quicker return to daily activities when compared to traditional knee replacement surgery. In many cases, patients can walk and drive a car soon after surgery. The MAKOplasty procedure is performed with the Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which provides surgeons with consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing.

Osteoarthritis and Knee Resurfacing

People who have early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee can take advantage of MAKOplasty® with Robotic Arm technology for Partial Knee Resurfacing.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says that more than 15 million Americans currently suffer from osteoarthritis, one of the most common joint disorders. Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that occurs when the cartilage in joints wears away. Osteoarthritis typically worsens over time, and there is no cure.
