People suffering from knee or hip pain may benefit from MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing or total hip arthroplasty, performed at Adventist Health Glendale (AHGL). 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.

To find out if you are a candidate for the MAKOplasty® procedure, make an appointment with one of our orthopedic experts. For a referral, call (818) 409-8000.
