Community Hospital in Oklahoma City is proud to offer MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, the latest advancement in robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery for partial and total knee and total hip replacement surgery. This advanced technology is the latest tool in the battle against knee and hip pain.
MAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted procedure that is used to perform full hip or knee replacement or partial knee resurfacing, in addition to joint resurfacing. MAKOplasty is supported by the RIO (Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System), and was designed to help patients who suffer from degenerative joint diseases.
The MAKO procedure enables Community Hospital surgeons to reach a new level of precision using the latest technology. The RIO robotic arm provides surgeons with a 3-D model to help prepare them for the upcoming surgery, and enables them to plan the placement of the knee or hip implants prior to surgery.
◾Quicker relief from pain
◾Improved surgical outcomes
◾Quicker recovery–from months to weeks
◾Smaller incision, less scarring
◾Reduced blood loss during surgery
◾Shorter hospital stay
◾A more natural-feeling joint following surgery
A recent clinical study has found that 89% of patients who have undergone a uni-compartmental knee arthroscopy procedure (such as MAKOplasty®) are “very satisfied” or “satisfied” at two years after the procedure.
The 3D model of your hip or knee is used to pre-plan to the surgery and provide your surgeon an unparalleled level of accuracy in performing a total hip replacement or partial knee replacement.
MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted surgery is customized for your individual anatomy.
It all begins with a CT scan of your joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the MAKO system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan.
From there, your surgeon uses the MAKO to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The MAKO system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the MAKO system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.
Don’t let chronic knee and hip pain keep you from what you love most.
