Total knee replacement involves replacing a diseased or damaged joint with an artificial joint implant. A Mako Robot assisted total knee replacement is when a Mako Robot assists the surgeon in making pre-determine cuts to perform the total knee replacement surgery.
The first step in the process is to have doctor consultation to determine how much damage there has been to the knee joint. Then a CT scan is perform and creates a 3D image to model to the patient’s unique anatomy. The doctor consults the robot to ensure that model displays the most accurate placement of the implant. This process spares the muscles, limits tissue damage and quickens the recovery time.
The robotic knee replacement does not do all the work for the surgeon but rather guides the surgeon and has the option for the surgeon to make adjustments if needed during surgery. Most insurances cover the robot assisted surgery because it is treated like any other regular equipment in the operating room.
If you suffer from knee pain schedule an appointment for an examination and consultation with an orthopedic specialist. Knee pain does not have to be a deterrent to living life to its fullest.
