Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total and Partial Knee & Hip Application

OrthoGeorgia Surgery Center provides the latest in Robotic technology using Stryker’s Mako Robot.

The Stryker/Mako Robotic System is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by providing each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy. 

Mako Total Knee, Partial Knee & Hip are the future of orthopaedics.

  • Mako Smart Robotics transforms the way total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements are performed.
  • Using a virtual 3D model, the Mako System allows surgeons to create each patient’s surgical plan pre-operatively before entering the operating room. 
  • During surgery, the surgeon can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic-arm to execute that plan. 
    • It’s exciting to be able to offer this transformative technology across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements.

Joint Replacement Surgery at OrthoGeorgia

Joint replacement surgery is performed on an arthritic or damaged joint with a new, artificial joint called a prosthesis. The knee and the hip are the most commonly replaced joints, although the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle joints can also be replaced.

Joints contain cartilage, a material that cushions the ends of bones and facilitates movement. Over time, or if the joint has been injured, the cartilage wears away and the bones of the joint start rubbing together causing bone spurs to form.
The joint becomes stiff and painful/arthritic.

Most people have joint replacement surgery when they can no longer control the pain with medication and other treatments and the pain significantly interferes with their daily activities.
It can be a life-changing procedure enabling patients who are battling chronic pain or disability in their joints to live fuller, more active lives.

I Have Not Received Care Like That Before

“It was very convenient, people were attentive... on a scale of 1-10, I'd have to say 10, honestly. I hope I don't have another replacement, but if I do, I'll come back to OrthoGeorgia."
