Are you suffering from debilitating pain in the knee or hip? Have you been told you may need a total hip replacement or knee resurfacing to ease your pain? Orthopedic surgery can be major surgery, and many patients may avoid the surgery they need for fear something will go wrong.
At Pine Creek Medical Center in Dallas, it is our goal to offer our patients the best and most advanced medical solutions. MAKOplasty® is an advanced, innovative surgical treatment option for knee and hip surgery in which patients can place their confidence.
MAKOplasty is powered by a surgeon-controlled RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive System, allowing surgeons to treat patient-specific knee and hip conditions with consistency and precision. The RIO robotic arm technology allows doctors to place implants with increased accuracy, which in turn improves the outcome of the surgery for the patient.
MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing is a less-invasive surgery with more rapid recovery time for patients who suffer from early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee affecting only parts of the knee. Other surgical options may require a total knee resurfacing, but if just one or two parts of the knee are affected, why not undergo a partial knee resurfacing instead? By utilizing the robotic arm technology and 3-D visualization of the knee, the surgeon is able to limit resurfacing to only the affected areas of the knee, saving as much healthy bone and surrounding tissue as possible.
Patients who are living with non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint diseases affecting the hip can benefit from MAKOplasty Total Hip Arhtroplasty. Using the robotic arm technology and the patient’s CT scan data to reconstruct the anatomy, creating a patient-specific surgical plan, surgeons are able to accurately place and align the implant.
The accuracy provided by MAKOplasty decreases the likelihood of mechanical failure and improves surgical outcome for patients. We believe MAKOplasty is one of the best surgical options available for patients with debilitating knee or hip pain.
Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure, including MAKOplasty®. During your consultation, your doctor can explain these risks and help determine if MAKOplasty® is right for you. Schedule your consultation with Pine Creek Medical Center today!
