Patient Specific Knee Options
MAKOplasty® is a novel surgical procedure performed to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. It is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows the surgeon to perform the surgery more precisely and tailor the procedure to your specific anatomy.
Knee implants are artificial devices that form the essential parts of the knee during a knee replacement surgery. The knee implants vary by size, shape, and material. Implants are made of biocompatible materials that are well tolerated by the body with very little chance of “rejection”. Implants can be made of metal alloys, ceramics, or plastics and are attached to the bone with cement or by growth of bone into the undersurface.
