  • Knee pain with activity

  • A grating sensation or crunching feeling when you use your knee

MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing Surgery

The most common surgical knee intervention performed for OA is a total knee replacement. During this procedure, the natural joint is removed and replaced with an artificial implant. This treatment option is usually offered to patients with advanced osteoarthritis in the three compartments of the knee. But, total knee replacement is not always optimal for patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis in just one or two compartments of the knee.

Hospital stays average around one day, and in many cases following surgery, our patients are permitted to walk the same day, drive a car in the first few weeks, and return to normal daily activities shortly thereafter.

Due to its precision and minimally invasive surgical approach, MAKOplasty offers a number of advantages over traditional knee resurfacing or replacement procedures, such as:

  • Improved surgical outcomes
  • Less implant wear and loosening
  • More natural feeling knee
  • Smaller incision
  • Less scarring
  • Rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Promotes quick relief from pain and return to daily activities

As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
