Robotic Assisted Joint Replacement
Robotic assisted surgery is a new approach to joint replacement that provides a higher level of precision and reproducibility of implant alignment and positioning, which allows improved range of motion, stability and function. This MAKO system is controlled by the physician and enables accurate alignment and placement of implants. From a preoperative CT scan, an accurate 3D computerized model of the diseased joint is generated, allowing planning for the optimal final position of the implants. The surgeon then guides the robotic arm to accurately shape the bone and place the implant exactly as planned.
