Mako® robotic-arm assisted surgery
This type of knee replacement uses robotic-arm assisted technology for greater accuracy. The use of this technology has been shown to result in shorter hospital stays, smoother recovery and increased satisfaction.
In the weeks before your operation, the Mako® robotic-arm processes information taken from a 3D CT scan of your knee joint to generate a 3D virtual model of your knee. Your consultant then plans the operation to be within fractions of a millimetre with the help of the robotic-arm assisted technology.
During the operation, your consultant is always in control. The robotic-arm assisted technology allows the consultant to perform the joint replacement with pinpoint accuracy. The consultant uses the technology as an extension of his or herself, guiding surgical tools to the correct position. The robotic-arm assisted technology does not perform the surgery on its own.
Higher accuracy during surgery means the replacement fits as well as it possibly can and ensures the joint functions as normally as possible after surgery. It's been shown to result in a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and higher satisfaction. There's also strong evidence of decreased pain and fewer complications following surgery.
