Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

Each year more patients are identified and treated for earlier stages of arthritis. Some of this arthritis affects only part of the knee, which has led to the need for partial knee replacement as an alternative to total knee replacement.

Partial knee replacement surgery is available at St. Luke's with the Mako SmartRoboticsTM system. Mako is an innovative solution for individuals suffering from painful arthritis of the knee or hip, who haven't had relief from conservative treatments. The advanced robotic-arm technology helps surgeons precisely place joint implant materials.

About partial knee replacement surgery

The Mako system uses a CT scan to create a virtual 3D model, which allows surgeons to identify the best implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient's anatomy before surgery. During the operation the Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan during the surgery and assists the surgeon in executing the plan. The Mako system does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own or move without the surgeon guiding it.

Benefits of the Mako technology

Benefits of Mako joint replacement surgery include better joint placement precision, reduced amounts of pain medicine, shorter procedure times and faster recovery times compared with traditional joint replacement surgeries.

Is Mako right for you?

Individuals should talk with their family provider to determine next steps regarding hip and knee pain.
