If you're suffering from knee or hip pain, discover Mako® joint replacement—
a revolutionary way to treat joint degeneration.
Mako surgery is performed by a trained orthopedic surgeon who uses Mako System software and a robotic arm tool to remove diseased bone and cartilage with extreme precision and implant a replacement that accurately fits your individual anatomy.
Mako can be used for hip and knee replacement. Mako knee replacement offers two options: partial or total knee replacement. With partial knee, just one of the knee’s three compartments is replaced and the rest of the knee’s healthy tissue is spared. This is sometimes recommended for younger patients whose joint damage is confined to one area. With total knee replacement (the more common approach), all three compartments are replaced.
Mako technology was designed to help surgeons provide patients with surgical plans based on their specific diagnoses and anatomies. By selectively targeting just the damaged part of the joint, your surgeon can replace it while helping to spare the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.
