MAKOplasty Knee Resurfacing in Sonora

Partial knee surgery at Adventist Health Sonora

​If you suffer from osteoarthritis, you know how painful joint degeneration can be. Joint pain can severely hinder your ability to perform daily tasks, maintain your normal routine and enjoy your favorite activities.

Get your life back by undergoing partial knee resurfacing. This procedure can relieve your pain by specifically targeting the damaged part of your knee and leaving the healthy bone and ligaments intact.

At Adventist Health Sonora, we proudly offer MAKOplasty, a robotic-arm-assisted procedure for partial knee resurfacing. MAKOplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that involves only a 4- to 6-inch incision over the knee and smaller incision in the thigh and shin bones.

This procedure often results in a knee that feels more natural. Plus, patients who receive this treatment are still eligible for total knee replacement later on down the road if necessary.

If you are considering MAKOplasty or have questions about the procedure, be sure to discuss it with your physician or with a member of our orthopedics team. We can determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure and review all pre- and post-operative instructions with you.
