People suffering from knee or hip pain may benefit from MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing
or total hip arthroplasty, performed at Glendale Adventist
Medical Center (GAMC). These innovative treatment options are for adults with degenerative joint disease such as osteoarthritis
(OA) in the hip or knee.
MAKOplasty® can potentially offer the following
benefits for patients:
- Optimal implant placement
- Enhanced stability and mobility of the joint
- Rapid relief from pain and return to daily activities
- Healthy tissue and bone preservation
- A more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay
MAKOplasty® is powered by the RIO® Robotic
Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for more precision in performing partial knee resurfacing or
total hip arthroplasty. Using special computer software, the RIO® constantly monitors
and updates the patient's anatomy and enables the surgeon to make
adjustments during surgery, ensuring the proper placement of the new joint.
As a knee or hip arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty® is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
