MAKOplasty is FDA approved and uses the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System that provides advanced surgical accuracy. Combined with CT scans and advanced 3D modeling, the RIO® robotic technology assists the surgeon to deliver customized treatment with high precision.
This technology assists the surgeon in targeting and replacing only the damaged portion of the knee with a robotic piece, and helps the surgeon align the implant and secure it onto the joint. This minimal approach spares healthy tissue and bone from unnecessary removal or trauma, often leading to faster recovery times and a better experience using the joint post-surgery.
Mako Total Knee enabled surgeons to execute their surgical plans more accurately and protects soft tissue and ligaments from damage.
Mako patients surveyed 6 months after surgery reported lower pain scores than those who received a conventional joint replacement.
