Robotic joint replacement

High-tech methods can mean shorter recovery times and less pain

When your joints hurt, it can be hard to stay active and fit. If you are considering a total or partial joint replacement but are worried about a long hospital stay, the Makoplasty procedure could be right for you.

The Mako operation is minimally invasive, which means it requires a shorter recovery time and leaves a smaller scar than traditional joint replacement. During the procedure, your surgeon will use a robotic arm to carefully remove diseased bone and then place an implant precisely where it needs to be within your joint.
