Why Choose Us? Your Orthopedic Surgery Options
Whether you're having an advanced robotic-assisted knee or spine surgery or a high-quality traditional surgery, we're here to provide the latest in advanced medical care. Your dedicated care team will help you prepare for your orthopedic surgery and recovery. You'll find:
- Orthopedic-trained staff: Your nurses and other clinical staff know joints. They can provide focused care, quickly assess issues and know what to do if there is a problem.
- Robotic surgery: Robotic-assisted surgeries use a computer to create a 3D model of your joint and build a replacement that fits your body. The robot also helps the surgeon position the new joint or spinal fusion hardware to feel as natural and comfortable as possible. You and your doctor will decide if robotic-assisted surgery is the best option for you. Methodist Hospital is the only location in Peoria that offers robotic-assisted:
- Traditional surgery: A traditional orthopedic surgery option might be the best choice for you. You and your surgeon will make that decision based on your medical history and the status of your orthopedic illness or injury.
- Personalized care: We've built our orthopedics surgery programs around you. You'll get great care, high quality and our personal touch with any surgery, whether traditional or robotic.
What Is Robotic-Assisted Orthopedic Surgery?
You may have been living with discomfort for a while. Or perhaps an injury has sidelined your active life. Robotic-assisted surgery may be the option that reduces your pain and gets you back to your routine faster.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System™ (Mako)
The Mako robot creates a 3D model of your joint. It takes exact measurements of your body so an implant can be built specifically for you.
The Mako system can be used for:
- Partial knee replacement: If you have early to mid-stage arthritis damage but it isn't affecting your whole knee
- Total knee replacement: If your entire knee is damaged and you have pain from arthritis
- Total hip replacement: If you have inflammatory arthritis (rheumatoid, psoriatic or gouty types) or non-inflammatory hip joint disease (osteoarthritis caused by normal wear and tear)
Surgeons receive specialized training before they begin performing joint replacements using the Mako. Our experts in advanced Mako technology are:
- Thomas Mulvey, MD
- Jeffrey Akeson, MD
- Michael Gibbons, MD
- Luke Luetkemeyer, MD
- Chukwunenye Osuji, MD
