The technology used to perform a robotic knee
& hip replacement, known asMAKOplasty®, allows the surgeon to preserve
undamaged portions of the joint. This approach to arthroplasty also provides a
number of other advantages for the patient.
• Accurate placement of your hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
• More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
• Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together – this may improve the lifetime of the implant
