Mako robotic system used in hip and knee replacement
Orthopedic surgeons at Ascension Borgess are highly trained in robotic surgery using Mako SmartRobotics™ and the robotic-arm assisted Mako System for knee and total hip replacement. This technology helps your doctor create a personalized surgical plan. During your surgery, the orthopedic surgeon guides the robotic-arm to precisely position the implant in the joint.
Ascension Michigan orthopedic surgeons explain how the Mako system uses a CT scan to create a 3D model of the hip or knee. This system helps improve limb straightening and achieve a well-balanced joint. All parts of the robotic surgery are controlled by the surgeon.
Knee replacement surgery using the Mako technology may be an option for adults living with mid to late-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. Our surgical approach helps shorten recovery, compared to traditional knee replacement surgery. Most Medicare-approved and private health insurers cover Mako robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery.
- Mako SmartRobotics™ for hip replacement
Surgeons use Mako technology during total hip replacement surgery to treat degenerative joint disease caused by osteoarthritis in the hip joint, post-traumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis and hip dysplasia. During surgery, the orthopedic surgeon guides the Mako robotic arm to precisely position the implant in the hip and leg.
We understand that deciding to have hip or knee replacement is an important decision. Our doctors and care team take the time to explain if you are a candidate for joint replacement surgery. And for your recovery, Ascension Borgess offers orthopedic rehabilitation with physical therapy.
