Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery addresses partial and full joint replacements
Mako robotic-arm assisted orthopedic surgery is used for orthopedic surgeries that involve partial and full joint replacements.
The technology is used to cut away damaged bone and cartilage, and when needed, replacing joints with artificial components comprised of metal alloys, polymers, and high-grade plastics.
Before surgery a tomography (CT) scan is done to assist in planning how much bone should be removed. The scan also aids in maximizing the accuracy of the alignment and placement of the implant.
Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery provides tactile, visual and auditory feedback to assist the surgeon in achieving the desired orientation, resulting in enhanced stability and mobility.
