Mako Robotic Assisted Surgery at AOC

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology is an innovative solution for many suffering from painful arthritis of the knee or hip. Using a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy and a robotic arm, Mako helps surgeons plan and perform your joint replacement surgery. The information below is provided by Stryker.

Mako Total Hip

If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by arthritis or an injury to the hip, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery might be right for you.

In clinical studies, Mako resulted in:

  • More accurate placement and alignment of hip implants based on the surgical plan.*
  • Less likelihood of hip dislocation.*
  • Reduced blood loss.*
  • Replication of the feeling of a natural hip.*
  • Preservation of healthy bone.*

If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by arthritis or an injury to the knee, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery might be right for you.

The Mako difference:

  • In laboratory studies, Mako Total Knee enabled surgeons to execute their surgical plans more accurately. *
  • In a clinical study, Mako protected soft tissue and ligaments from damage. *
  • In a clinical study, Mako patients surveyed 6 months after surgery reported lower pain scores than those who received a conventional joint replacement. *
  • In a clinical study, Mako patients surveyed 6 months after surgery reported better patient satisfaction scores compared to those who received a conventional joint replacement. *

Mako Partial Knee

If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by arthritis or an injury to the knee, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery might be right for you.

In clinical studies, Mako Partial Knee resulted in:

  • More accurate bone removal and implant placement, which may result in improved outcomes and functioning of the knee. *
  • Less pain in the days and weeks following surgery. *
  • Shorter hospital stay. *
  • Quicker recovery, where 9 out of 10 patients were walking without an aid, such as a cane or walker, three weeks after surgery. *
  • 91% of patients being satisfied or very satisfied 5 years after surgery.*
