How Mako Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement Works
Using CT scans, the surgeon uses the Mako System to create a 3D virtual model of the joint being replaced for hip and knee replacement. During the surgery, the surgeon guides the prosthetic joint in place using a robotic arm. This robotic arm cannot go outside of predefined boundaries to ensure accurate placement and less damage to the surrounding tissues. This helps patients heal faster and get back to their normal activities sooner.
The outpatient procedure takes approximately an hour using local anesthesia, and patients can return home the same day or the day after surgery. During recovery, patients start participating in physical therapy right away to help improve their range of motion. Normal activities can be resumed in approximately six weeks after robotic hip and knee replacement.
