Why Choose Florida Hospital?

A proven, highly effective minimally invasive alternative to hip or knee replacement, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery takes a more conservative approach to osteoarthritis treatment by resurfacing the joint and placing an implant for smoother movement. Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is a relatively new surgical procedure in which a robotic arm is used to help the surgeon perform a very precise surgery, affording the patient a quicker and easier recovery and, in some cases, better outcomes. The orthopedic surgeons at Florida Hospital are experts at Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery and other types of orthopedic procedures, and can help you determine the treatment option that is best for your specific case.

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery refers to a type of robot-assisted surgery, used for either partial knee replacement or total hip replacement. This technology gives surgeons the ability of increased precision and accuracy, and gives patients the benefit of a less-invasive surgery that requires smaller incisions.

The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery robotic hip replacement is designed for patients with non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. Patients come in one or two weeks before their scheduled surgery for a CT scan, which the surgeon then uses to construct a unique surgical implant for the hip replacement, relaying on a patient-specific 3D model. During the procedure, visual, tactile, auditory feedback and real-time data help the surgery prepare the hip joint and place the implants in an optimal manner. Compared to traditional hip replacement, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery offers optimal implant placement, enhanced stability and mobility, and the chance for a more active lifestyle.

The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery robotic knee replacement—or more specifically, a robot-assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure—is used to treat the pain associated with joint degeneration caused by osteoarthritis. This surgery targets the part of the knee damaged by this conditions, and allows the surgeon to resurface the knee without damaging the healthy bone and ligaments around it. It also allows for a more precise implantation of implants, giving the patient a more natural feeling in knee after surgery and a more rapid recover than he or she would have with a traditional total knee replacement.
