“The Mako robot is a twenty-first century tool for twenty-first century joint replacements”
-Dr. Michal Higgins, Hip & Knee Replacement Specialist
Mako SmartRobotics™ uses 3D CT-based planning software so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan. By guiding your surgeon during surgery, Mako’s AccuStop™ technology allows your surgeon to cut less by cutting precisely what’s planned to help protect your healthy bone.
This technology has been studied extensively to ensure higher quality outcomes.
In clinical studies, patients who had a knee replacement with Mako experienced less pain in the days and weeks following their surgery, than those who had a conventional knee replacement.
In clinical studies patients who had a total hip replacement with Mako were able to preserve more bone than those who had a conventional hip replacement.
In laboratory studies for total knee replacement, Mako enabled surgeons to execute their surgical plans more accurately and protect soft tissue and ligaments from damage.
These are major reasons why Dr. Kingston, Dr. Payne and Dr. Higgins worked hard to be able to provide this cutting-edge technology at the COASC (Careplex Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center).
