About Mako™ Robotic –Arm Assisted Surgery
A proven, highly effective minimally invasive alternative to hip or knee replacement, Mako is a surgical procedure in which a robotic arm is used to help the surgeon perform a very precise surgery, affording the patient a quicker and easier recovery and, in some cases, better outcomes. The orthopaedic surgeons at DMH are specially-trained experts in Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery. Potential benefits include:
- Relief from pain
- Less implant wear and loosening
- Bone sparing
- Rapid recovery and return to daily activities
Our surgeons start with a CT scan of your joint and generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the Mako system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako system guides the orthopaedic surgeon within the predefined area and helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant based on your anatomy.
