Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery

The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology & Surgery makes possible highly predictable surgical experiences when performing hip and knee joint replacement surgery. The Mako System provides CT scan derived, patient-specific 3D modeling enabling accurate planning of implant size, orientation and alignment. The current Mako System product offering includes Partial Knee, Total Hip and Total Knee surgical applications.

The Mako System provides dynamic joint balancing by allowing the orthopedic surgeon to make intra-operative adjustments in order to optimize implant placement. The robotic-arm does NOT make decisions on its own or move without the surgeon guiding the robotic-arm.
