The term "Makoplasty" is the robotic arm-assisted platform used for the procdure . Your surgeon can resurface the knee while sparing the healthy bones and ligaments surrounding it. Prior to surgery, we will make arrangements for the patient to have a specific type of CT scan of the knee joint. The Mako Robotic system uses the CT-based planning software to allow the surgeon to make incisions precisely planned to help protect your healthy bone.
