Our Technology

Our orthopedic specialists at Southcoast Health offer knee replacement procedures to treat severe knee joint damage from injuries, arthritis or infections. If knee pain limits your daily activities, and treatments like physical therapy, medication or joint injections haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for Mako Robotic-Arm assisted total knee replacement.

The Mako Total Knee System

Mako Total Knee System Benefits include:

  • Quicker recovery time than traditional knee replacements.
  • Personalized surgical plans.
  • Implants designed for natural, normal movement.
  • Reduced risk of complications.

The Mako Total Knee System may be a treatment option for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Mako allows a custom surgical plan for patients based on their unique anatomy.

During the procedure, our surgeons will guide the robotic arm of the Mako system based on the patient’s specific 3D model during preplanning for surgery. This allows the surgeon to position the implant, preserve healthy bone and soft tissue while removing the diseased bone.
