Joint Resurfacing with Makoplasty

Joint resurfacing is a surgical procedure, in which only the diseased part of the joint is replaced rather than the complete joint. It is comparatively less traumatic, less invasive and natural tissue retaining procedure and also reported to be more effective than the conventional replacement. Other major advantages are better range of movement, no risk of fat embolus or fracture near the tip of bone; restoration of normal anatomy and can be performed even in deformed bones. Joint resurfacing is indicated in people suffering from different conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, rotator cuff or instability arthropathy, and post-traumatic arthritis.

MAKOplasty

MAKOplasty® is a novel surgical procedure performed to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. It is performed using the robotic-arm technology that allows the surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through a smaller incision as compared to traditional surgery.

Your doctor may order a few X-rays and CT scan to determine the damaged areas, of the joint, that need to be removed for the precise placement of the knee implant.

Benefits

MAKOplasty® offers the following benefits:

  • Replaces only the arthritic portion of the joint
  • More ideal joint function
  • Accurate implant positioning
  • Smaller incision
  • Bone and tissue sparing
  • Minimal hospitalization
  • Rapid recovery

Since healthy bone is preserved, patients who undergo MAKOplasty® may have a total knee replacement procedure later, if required. MAKOplasty® is usually covered by health insurance. Your doctor will discuss the associated benefits and risks of the procedure.
