Total Knee Replacement

During total knee replacement (which is also called total knee arthroplasty), your surgeon removes the damaged surfaces of the knee joint and replaces them with metal and plastic components referred to as the prosthesis or implant. The implant is designed to replace the function of a healthy knee.

How Mako Technology works

The Mako difference:

  • In laboratory studies, Mako Total Knee enabled surgeons to execute their surgical plans more accurately.
  • In a clinical study, Mako protected soft tissue and ligaments from damage.
  • In a clinical study, Mako patients surveyed 6 months after surgery reported lower pain scores than those who received a conventional joint replacement.
  • In a clinical study, Mako patients surveyed 6 months after surgery reported better patient satisfaction scores compared to those who received a conventional joint replacement.

Mako Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Mako Total 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.

Personalized surgical plan

The first step is patient-specific surgical planning. Before surgery, a CT scan of your knee is taken to develop a 3D virtual model of your unique joint. Your doctor uses this model to evaluate your bone structure, disease severity, joint alignment and even the surrounding bone and tissue, so they can determine the optimal size, placement and alignment 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.
