What Are the Benefits to MAKOplasty?

MAKOplasty is currently used at Triangle Orthopaedics for partial knee resurfacing and for total hip arthroplasty.  MAKOplasty procedures are performed with an extremely advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm.  Typically, this procedure is conducted to help individuals with non-inflammatory or inflammatory joint disease.

For patients with early to midstage OA in the medial, patellofemoral, or in both compartments of the knee, MAKOplasty can serve as an effective treatment method.  With MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing, patients may observe the following benefits:

  • Optimal implant positioning, which allows for a more natural feeling post-surgery.
  • Faster recovery and decreased length of hospital stay when compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.
  • Can be an outpatient procedure.
  • Quicker pain relief and return to normal activities.

A MAKOplasty hip procedure provides numerous benefits to a patient including:

  • Stable biomechanical reconstruction with matched leg length restoration.
  • Real-time data for surgeons to most optimally align and position implants.
  • Decreased recovery and pain associated with surgery.
  • Ability to return to normal activities sooner than with traditional hip replacement.

During a consultation, your physician will discuss your individual MAKOplasty options with you, and evaluate if the procedure is a good solution for you.  To learn more about MAKOplasty, please contact our North Carolina Triangle Orthopaedic centers today.
