Mako Technology

One of the latest innovations in medical science, Mako surgery is a minimally invasive option for patients seeking to maintain joint function. The procedure can be done with a much lower risk of infection, pain or loss of mobility. The surgical procedure is typically completed in about an hour and has significantly less bruising, swelling and risk of postoperative infections than traditional methods. With the Mako procedure, you will experience a better range of motion, less pain and a quicker recovery time when compared with traditional surgery.

Scan. It all starts with a CT scan so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy.

Plan. The CT scan is used to create a 3D CT-based model of your hip. Your surgeon uses this 3D model to create a personalized surgical plan and to assist your surgeon in performing your hip replacement procedure.

Mako Can. In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides Mako’s robotic arm within the predefined area, and Mako’s AccuStop technology helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized surgical plan was created.
