MAKOplasty® offers a new alternative for those with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee.

Using a surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, MAKOplasty® offers a new alternative for those with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. This minimally invasive procedure for resurfacing the arthritic portion of the knee is so accurate that it provides optimal positioning and alignment, which may result in more natural knee motion following surgery. Most patients are back to their daily activities within two to three weeks.
