Total Knee Replacement

Total Knee Replacement

 

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. 

 
Over the years, knee replacement techniques and instrumentation have undergone countless improvements. If you require a Total Knee Replacement, Lingard Private Hospital's surgeons offer patients advanced surgical techniques and the latest innovation, including the Mako Robotic-Arm Technology to assist your surgeon with this procedure.

 

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. 

 
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology was designed to help surgeons provide patients with a personalised surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy.
