At Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic, we’re committed to offering our patients the most advanced treatment options for improved health outcomes and quality of life. For individuals with arthritic knee and hip problems, we are proud to offer Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery.
Benefits of Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery:
- Custom hip and knee implants individually designed to fit your unique anatomy for a natural, trouble-free fit.
- Less pain and more accurate implant placement than manual partial knee replacement in a randomized control trial.
- Mako robotic-arm assisted total hip replacement resulted in higher clinical scores for hip function, motion, activity and elimination of pain compared to manual total hip replacement after one year or more of follow-up.
- Other benefits of Mako surgery can include smaller incisions, less blood loss, less scarring and minimal hospitalization.
