The Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute is proud to offer
Mako SmartRobotics™, a highly advanced robotics technology transforming the way total knee, partial knee and hip replacements are performed. Mako SmartRobotics combines three key components, 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop haptic technology and insightful data analytics, into one platform allowing surgeons to have more predictable surgical experiences with increased precision and accuracy. These procedures involve the orthopedic surgeon guiding Mako’s robotic arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage.
Partial Knee replacement relieves pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic arm selectively targeting only the part of the knee damaged by osteoarthritis to resurface the diseased portion of the knee while helping to protect the healthy bone surrounding the knee joint. With Mako Partial Knee, robotic-arm assisted partial knee replacement leads to greater accuracy of implant position to plan compared to
manual partial knee replacement procedures.
Adding Mako SmartRobotics to our services here at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute further demonstrates our commitment to provide the community with outstanding healthcare.

Designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, you will be asked to follow these guidelines when visiting our hospitals and clinics:
• Physician Clinics and Hospital Outpatient Departments and Physical/Occupational Therapy Locations – One person (and a healthcare associate if indicated) may accompany the patient to the clinic.
• Hospital Surgery Patients – One person may accompany the patient to the Pre-Operative area on admission and until they are taken back to the Surgery suite. The family or companion will then be escorted to the surgery waiting area.
• Hospital Surgery Waiting Room – The hospital waiting room on the second floor has been reopened and due to space we ask that one visitor per patient may remain in the waiting room while the patient is in ISS, surgery or recovery.
Please note the above policies are subject to change pending public health recommendations.
