Knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee and/or under the knee cap
MAKO ROBOTIC PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Meet MAKO Robotic Arm-Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing – an innovative treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. By selectively targeting the part of the knee damaged by osteoarthritis, your surgeon can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.
It is powered by the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing. During the procedure, the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again.
