• MAKOPlasty®


      Manhattan Orthopedic & Sports Medicine is proud to announce ROBOTIC ASSISTED PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT (MAKOplasty®). Through the use of a Robotic Arm our surgeons now perform more precise partial knee replacements using a MINIMALLY INVASIVE technique. This cutting edge technology helps restore a patient’s more natural knee motion.

      Unlike Total Knee Replacement, ROBOTIC ASSISTED PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT (MAKOplasty®) is a resurfacing of the joint with much less bone being removed. Our surgeons use a smaller incision than required for traditional total knee replacement surgery. During the procedure, the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced and an implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again.

      Arthritis is the breakdown of cartilage in a joint allowing the bones to rub together. MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis in one compartment of the knee. As patients living with arthritis know, this is exciting news!

      ROBOTIC ASSISTED PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT is an outpatient procedure, therefore patients will have surgery in the morning and go home later in the afternoon.

      Other patient benefits include:

      • Minimal surgical incision.
      • Reduced post-surgical pain.
      • Accelerated recovery and improved outcomes.
      • A more rapid return to daily lifestyle and activities.
      • A more natural feeling knee following surgery

      Since the earliest days of surgery, doctors have been working to hone the existing tools and techniques of the operating room in order to allow patients to heal faster and limit the discomfort inherent to such procedures. Now, as we move steadily into the 21st century, new technologies are allowing orthopedic surgeons to achieve a level of surgical precision that goes beyond what we have ever seen before. ROBOTIC ASSISTED PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT gets our patients back to work and resuming their active lifestyles faster than ever.

      And that’s something worth jumping for joy over—literally.
