Are You a Candidate for MAKOplasty?

The MAKOplasty procedure is indicated for patients suffering from unicompartmental or bicompartmental knee disease, typically early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis in the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or lateral (outer) compartments of the knee.

Typically, MAKOplasty® patients share the following characteristics:

  • Knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee and/or under the kneecap
  • Start-up knee pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position
  • Failure to respond to non-surgical treatments or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication

A total replacement is sometimes necessary if your surgeon discovers during surgery that your knee has more damage than originally seen in the pre-operative X-rays and CT scan.

Your physician will discuss the specific risks associated with MAKOplasty and other treatment options with you.
