Unlike traditional open surgery, in which the physician makes a long incision to access the anatomy, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions, resulting in faster recovery and less pain for the patient.
Orthopedic surgeries treat conditions of the ankle, elbow, hand/wrist, hip and knee. Surgeries include:
Partial Knee Replacement with the MAKO Medical Robot
Partial knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery option that could mean shorter recovery time. More than 90% of our patients go home the very same day.
MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with arthritic knees, who are in early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA). During the MAKOplasty® procedure, the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again.
"Custom Fit" Knee Replacement
With "custom fit" knee replacement surgery, custom cutting guides preserve healthy bone and ligaments and improve implant fit and alignment. This procedure allows for a quicker recovery time, less pain, and a better range of motion. Only 400 doctors nationwide perform this specialized surgery.
