The MAKOplasty® Procedure

People suffering from knee or hip pain who desire a restoration of lifestyle, minimized surgery, reduced pain and rapid recovery may benefit from MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing or Total Hip Arthroplasty, performed at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. These innovative treatment options are for adults suffering from degenerative joint disease such as osteoarthritis (OA) in the hip or knee and potentially offer the following benefits:

  • Optimal implant placement
  • Enhanced stability and mobility of the joint
  • A rapid relief from pain and return to daily activities

Additionally, partial knee resurfacing patients enjoy:

  • Precise resurfacing of only the arthritic portion of the knee
  • Healthy tissue and bone preservation
  • A more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • A more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional total knee replacement surgery

MAKOplasty® is powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing or total hip arthroplasty. Using surgical planning and execution software, the RIO's digital tracking system constantly monitors and updates the patient's anatomy and enables the surgeon to make real-time adjustments during surgery for optimal implant placement.
