Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery

Knee or hip replacement surgery can be intimidating to think about, but know that you’re not alone in this. We put your comfort first in every way we can, with minimally invasive procedures like Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery.

Surgeries That Won’t Set You Back

Advanced Orthopedic Care With Mako® Technology

Knee and hip pain can make even the most basic activities feel like a chore. If debilitating joint conditions are ruining your family vacations or putting a stop to the hikes you used to enjoy with friends, you may be considering joint replacement surgery. Traditionally, surgery meant a long recovery period and a number of risks, even when performed by the most skilled physicians. But today, surgery doesn’t have to be so scary.

Our orthopedic surgeons are always pioneering new techniques that allow for a less-invasive experience and shorter recovery time. When Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, previously called MakoPlasty, was first engineered, we were the first health care facility in Florida to use it in our treatments. That’s because we’re committed to bringing you the best orthopedic care available and constantly improving the services we offer. With Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, you can experience treatment that relieves your joint pain while significantly reducing the risks and recovery times associated with traditional open surgery.

What Is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

You’re always looking for the best care. We’re always seeking ways to deliver it. Our orthopedic surgeons are constantly innovating to find the safest, most successful treatment plans. Robotic-arm assisted surgery allows your surgeon to remove only the diseased bone from your knee or hip, which means your healthy tissues are preserved. The robotic arm guides the surgeon to position your implant, providing extra precision and efficiency.

Robotic-arm assisted surgery also gives your surgeon the ability to plan your procedure ahead of time through a specific 3D model of your hip or knee. AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital, Orthopedic Institute was the first facility in the state to offer robotic-arm assisted surgery, which means we’re the most experienced and best equipped to guide you through the process.

The Benefits of Mako® Technology

Mako® technology offers you the prospect of less hospital time and fewer complications than traditional surgery options. With the assistance of this robotic technology, our skilled surgeons can complete procedures with greater precision and via very small incisions, meaning a safer experience with fewer scars and a faster recovery. Many people are able to walk just a few hours after treatment, and most are out of the hospital in one to three days. Other benefits include:

  • Better Precision From Robotic Assistance
  • Fewer Complications
  • Higher Success Rates
  • Potential for Faster Recoveries
  • Restructuring or Replacement of Joints Promotes Enhanced Stability
  • Surrounding Tissues and Bones Are Left Untouched and Healthy
