What is MAKO Knee Resurfacing?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that inflames and damages your knee bones and soft tissues. Severe knee osteoarthritis may cause pain that makes it difficult for you to walk or even stand. Your quality of life decreases as it becomes difficult to perform normal everyday movements and activities.

A MAKO knee resurfacing procedure may be used to treat severe knee osteoarthritis as an alternative to a traditional total knee replacement. At Active Orthopedic & Sports Medicine our Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeons use advanced MAKO software and a state-of-the-art MAKO robot to make precise bone cuts and replace the osteoarthritic bone with perfectly positioned metal and plastic components.

Prior to surgery, a 3-D model of the knee is made using the MAKO computer software so that a precise implant can be custom fitted for your knee. This often leads to the implant be a better fit as well as reduces surgical time.

How is MAKO knee resurfacing performed?

Your Active Orthopedic & Sports Medicine MAKO knee resurfacing expert:

  • Carefully makes an incision on the front of the knee
  • Gently retracts muscles and soft tissues
  • Makes bone cuts using a MAKO software produced 3-D knee model and a MAKO robot
  • Perfectly positions knee components and cements them in place

Your symptoms decrease quickly after your procedure and continue to improve as you regain strength, flexibility, and function.

This is the best Doctor I’ve ever been to for chronic disk problems in my back. He reads his own MRI’s and such, went to a top US Medical school and the surgical procedure I had with him couldn’t have gone better. The staff is efficient and very friendly.
