MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing and Total Hip Replacement

Osteoarthritis, hip and Knee Resurfacing

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says that more than 15 million Americans currently suffer from osteoarthritis, one of the most common joint disorders. Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that occurs when the cartilage in your joints wears away. Osteoarthritis typically worsens over time, and there is no cure.

Physicians at Valley Hospital Medical Center can now treat early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee and as well as perform total hip replacements utilizing robotic technology.

MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement
In total hip replacement surgery, the affected hip is removed and replaced with implants. MAKOplasty is an innovative alternative that uses robotic technology for more precise placement of hip implants, using real-time information and images.

MAKOplasty® Knee Resurfacing
MAKOplasty robotic technology also is available to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis in the knees that can cause pain while standing or walking, or cause swelling or a grating or crunching sensation in the knee. This minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure allows surgeons to accurately identify the affected area of the knee and selectively target and treat only the affected area and spare healthy bone and ligaments.

Using small incisions, surgeons treat only the affected area, place the implant and preserve as much natural bone and tissue as possible.
