This advanced technology is the latest tool in the battle against knee and hip pain.
What is Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery?
Mako Technology 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. This technology was designed to help patients who suffer from degenerative joint diseases.
The procedure enables Community Hospital surgeons to reach a new level of precision using the latest technology. The Mako Technology 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.
The Benefits of Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery:
- Quicker relief from pain
- Improved surgical outcomes
- Quicker recovery–from months to weeks

Malcom's MAKO Story
CONQUER YOUR KNEE & HIP PAIN TODAY!
A recent clinical study has found that 89% of patients who have undergone a uni-compartmental knee arthroscopy procedure are “very satisfied” or “satisfied” at two years after the procedure.
What Surgeons Say About Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
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.
The MAKO system uses advanced 3D imaging of the affected joint to produce a pre-operative plan, customized to each patient’s unique anatomy and condition.
MAKO ROBOTIC-ARM ASSISTED SURGERY IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PARTIAL AND TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENTS AND TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENTS.
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 system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan.
How the Procedure Works
From there, your surgeon uses the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The 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 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.
