MAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA). By selectively targeting the part of your knee damaged by OA, your surgeon can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.
A procedure using an arthroscope through two tiny incisions to perform many ligament and cartilage repairs allowing return to normal function. Done as an outpatient surgery after which the patient can often return to work in just a few days.
Performed to replace a torn, nonfunctional knee ligament with the use of an arthroscope. Patients are home the same day and generally return to the highest level of sports in which they participated prior to injury.
A custom-made implant that is created to fit each patient exactly, designed from a special CAT scan. It is inserted to resurface only the part of the knee affected with arthritis. The remainder of the knee, including cartilage and ligaments, is retained in its normal state. This is done through a small incision as either an outpatient or one-day hospitalization. Most patients walk with a cane or nothing after one week.
An implanted mechanical device to treat knee arthritis, which is done through a less invasive approach and with the use of computer navigation to assist in evaluating leg alignment, more accurate placement, and fit of implants to potentially last longer. This is also how revision knee surgery is done.
A procedure to rid the hip joint of arthritis, reduce pain and improve function. Done through a less invasive approach and with the use of computer navigation to assist in evaluating leg length more accurately and reducing dislocations. This is also how revision hip surgery is done.
For a younger, more active patient, this may provide some advantage to return to higher levels of activity.
A procedure to treat degenerative conditions or trauma to the tendons or joints of the shoulder, which is done through a magnified camera and 5mm incisions. This includes common rotator cuff tear.
An implanted mechanical device to treat shoulder arthritis in a semipermanent fashion.
A specialized procedure to treat severe arthritis with poor rotator cuff function.
Removing a part of the injured disc to relieve compression on a nerve—done through a 1-2cm incision under a microscope. This is done as an outpatient surgery.
Removing part or all of the back piece of a spinal bone to relieve compression on a nerve or the spinal cord—done through a 1-3cm incision under a microscope as an outpatient. Frequently used to treat spinal stenosis.
Focused on multiple options in order to reduce surgical trauma and scarring, and minimize operative time and blood loss, yet continually focusing on procedures with clinical and biochemical proof of effectiveness.
A highly complex device (similar to a pacemaker) implanted in the spine to help alleviate pain of a chronic nature.
A small implanted device placed through a 3cm incision under local or regional anesthesia to treat spinal stenosis as an outpatient.
A needle procedure performed under sedation to treat painful spinal bone fractures.
Many procedures to treat carpal tunnel syndrome; tendonitis of the hand, wrist and elbow; trauma and overuse injuries.
Multiple procedures, including arthroscopy, to treat ligament and cartilage injuries as well as Achilles tendon injuries.
Fractures of all types and degrees of severity utilizing the most tissue-sparing approaches and newest state-of-the-art devices.
