What is Mako SmartRobotics™?

Mako SmartRobotics™ is a modern technology designed to help provide solutions for hip or knee pain. It comes with a 3D CT-based planning software that helps our orthopedic doctors understand the anatomy of our patients and design personalized joint replacement surgical plans.

How does Mako SmartRobotics™ work for Hip and Knee Replacement?

Mako SmartRobotics™ does not perform the surgery, but it comes with a robotic arm that guides orthopedic surgeons in the operating room. It helps surgeons precisely fit implants on the parts of the hip and/or knee that need to be replaced. During the operation, the surgeon follows the surgical plan and uses the Mako’s robotic arm within the predefined area. This solution comes with the Mako’s AccuStop™ technology which cuts accurately and stays within the planned boundaries of the surgery to protect bones that are healthy.

During the actual surgery, Mako SmartRobotics™ also allows your surgeon make adjustments to the surgical plan as needed.

Injuries and Conditions that May Need Hip or Knee Replacement

We don’t want you to suffer from pain any longer. So whether your condition requires a partial or a total hip or knee replacement, our minimally invasive treatment options using Mako SmartRobotics™ may quickly help improve your quality of life with more accurate surgeries, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.

Some of the injuries and conditions that may need a total hip or knee replacement include:
  • Osteoarthritis
