Generally for those with severe cases of osteoarthritis, even those with limited joint damage can now be successfully treated with MAKOplasty total knee replacement or a partial knee replacement.

MAKOplasty is typically recommended for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis in the knee. One of the main benefits of partial knee resurfacing is the ability to target the damaged area of the knee without compromising the healthy bone and tissue.

Key benefits of MAKOplasty:

Thanks to the precision of the robotic-arm technology in MAKOplasty, Dr. Mines can isolate the arthritic part of the knee without having to replace the entire knee joint.

  • Optimal implant positioning for a natural-feeling knee post-surgery.
  • A procedure resulting in a much shorter hospital stay and faster knee recovery times compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.
  • Rapid relief from knee pain and a swift recovery.
