Dr. Johnson is West Michigan’s first Mako Certified Physician for this advanced robotic-arm assisted partial and complete knee replacement.
Knee replacement is a fairly common yet specialized surgical procedure in which a diseased or damaged joint is replaced with an artificial joint called an implant.
Made of metal alloys and high grade plastics (to better match the function of bone and cartilage, respectively), the knee implant is designed to move much like a healthy human joint. Knee replacement techniques and instrumentation have undergone numerous improvements, leading to the use of smaller incisions. Such improvements may result in less trauma to soft tissue.
If you know of someone who had a knee replaced even 5 years ago, the surgical procedure used today is likely to be quite different . . with better outcomes.
