If you suffer from knee pain caused by early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, robotic-assisted MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing at Orthopedics Services at Yuma Regional Medical Center may help you return to your regular activities pain-free.
Because it selectively targets just the part of your knee damaged by osteoarthritis, MAKOplasty can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow it to move smoothly again.
MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing is a robotic-assisted procedure. It combines computer navigation, a 3-dimensional CT scan and a surgeon-actuated robotic arm for increased surgical precision. MAKOplasty can often be performed through a four to six inch incision over your knee with small incisions in both your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin). This minimally invasive approach also means less pain, a short hospital stay, reduced blood loss, less scarring and a quicker return to your life.
