Partial Knee Replacement

If you’ve caught the arthritic damage early, you may be eligible for a partial knee replacement. This is where the disease has not progressed to all 3 compartments of the knee, allowing the surgeon to replace fewer parts.

In a unicondylar knee replacement, only one area (or compartment) of the joint is replaced.

A patellofemoral knee replacement replaces the kneecap (or patella) and the grove at the lower end of the thighbone (or femur).

A bicompartmental knee replacement affects two compartments of the knee – the inside (medial) and knee cap.

How Mako Technology works

In clinical studies, Mako Partial Knee resulted in:

  • More accurate bone removal and implant placement, which may result in improved outcomes and functioning of the knee.
  • Less pain in the days and weeks following surgery.
  • Shorter hospital stay.
  • Quicker recovery, where 9 out of 10 patients were walking without an aid, such as a cane or walker, three weeks after surgery.
  • 91% of patients being satisfied or very satisfied 5 years after surgery.

Mako Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

Mako Partial Knee is for people with:

  • Severe knee pain or stiffness resulting from: noninflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular necrosis), rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis.
  • Those who haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, like bracing, medication or joint fluid supplements.
  • Early to mid-stage osteoarthritis that doesn’t affect all 3 compartments of the knee.

Personalized surgical plan

Prior to surgery, a CT scan of your knee joint is taken in order to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. The 3D model helps your doctor see things they can’t typically see with an x-ray alone. This additional information helps your doctor determine the optimal size, placement and positioning of your implant.

Range-of-motion assessment

Throughout your procedure, Mako provides real-time data to your surgeon. This allows them to continuously assess the movement and tension of your new joint, and adjust your surgical plan if desired.

Arthritic bone removal

In the operating room, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm to remove the arthritic bone and cartilage from your knee. The Mako System creates a virtual boundary that provides tactile resistance to help your doctor stay within the boundaries defined during the planning process.

Implant placement

With the diseased bone gone, your implant is placed into the knee joint. Then it’s off to the recovery room to begin your journey to strengthening your new joint.
