Orthopedic Advances Offered at Baptist Orthopedic HospitalAug 16, 2017
The Baptist Orthopedic Hospital on the campus of North Central Baptist Hospital in the Stone Oak area is now offering MAKOplasty to help patients conquer their pain. MAKOplasty uses digitally captured, 3-D modeling prior to surgery, which surgeons use to determine implant size, orientation and alignment, in most cases leading to more accurate placement and better outcomes.
For patients who only need partial-knee replacements, MAKOplasty allows surgeons to preserve healthy tissue and ligaments, removing only the diseased portions of the joint and resulting in a more natural feeling knee. In many cases MAKOplasty patients experience less pain during the first week after surgery than do patients who underwent manual surgery after two months. MAKOPlasty is also available for people who need total knee replacement.
“Baptist Orthopedic Hospital is working to deliver best in class technology, people, procedures, outcomes and research,” said Graham Reeve, President and COO of Baptist Health System. “The hospital was designed to surround patients with a hotel-like experience while delivering safe, high quality services and care that address the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system.” Some of the specialties offered by the hospital are:
