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.
