Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology
This is Mako, a robotic-arm assisted technology that helps surgeons provide patients with a personalized surgical experience. A 3D model will be used to pre-plan and assist in performing your joint replacement surgery.
This highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling orthopedic surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy. The Mako System is used for:
- Total Knee Replacement
- Partial Knee Replacement
- Total Hip Replacement
The Mako System uses CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy. The surgeon uses the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy.
David Dickerson has undergone specialty training on the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement System and is committed to reducing pain and helping patients achieve a better quality of life.
Mako Total Hip
Mako can be used for Total Hip Replacement (THR), which is a procedure designed for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease of the hip.
Mako Partial Knee
Mako can be used for partial knee replacement (PKR), which is a procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA) in one or two compartments of the knee.
Mako Total Knee
Over the years, knee replacement techniques and instrumentation have undergone countless improvements. Mako is an example of how technology is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are being performed.
