A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure preformed when the diseased knee joint is replaced or resurfaced with an implant. Patients
with severe destruction of the knee joint, generally attributed to Osteoarthritis and associated with progressive pain and impaired function, maybe
candidates for total knee replacement.
What is robotic-arm assisted technology?
When you hear ‘robotic-arm assisted technology’, it’s important to understand that the Mako Robotic-Arm doesn’t actually perform the surgery. Surgery is
performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, who uses the robotic system software to pre-plan your surgery. Your orthopaedic surgeon will guide the robotic-arm
to remove diseased bone and cartilage. Then the surgeon will insert the Total Knee implant.
