MAKO Knee System

Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Total Knee  Replacement

Have you had enough of osteoarthritis pain? Has conservative treatment not helped your pain?

Is it time to get your knee replaced? 

Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinic and our team of surgeons use the most advanced medical treatments both in and out of the operating room. One of the most recent advancements in knee replacement is the Mako Robotic Arm Assisted Surgery System. 

Surgeons who use robotics in the operating room have the ability to customize your treatment based on your own unique anatomy, resulting in excellent patient outcomes.

How does MAKO knee replacement surgery work?

Mako joint replacement surgery uses a surgeon-directed robotic arm for precision alignment and placement of knee replacement implants.

First, your surgeon will do a CT scan of your damaged joint.

Then, the CT scan of your knee is loaded into the Mako system, where  a 3D virtual model of your joint is created. This 3D model allows your surgeon to see exactly what needs to be done in your knee replacement surgery and creates a detailed preoperative plan. Your bone structure, disease severity, joint alignment, and surrounding tissue is assessed and the proper size, placement, and alignment of your implant is determined..

During surgery your surgeon will use your customized plan and guide the Mako robotic-arm to remove only the damaged bone, taking only what is necessary and leaving your healthy bone and tissue in place. Mako provides a virtual boundary based on the preoperative plan, assisting  your surgeon with laser accuracy.

Next, your surgeon will use the Mako system to precisely place and align the implant.

The Mako system provides real-time data to your surgeon about the movement and tension of your new joint so that the surgeon can adjust as necessary to give you outstanding outcomes..
