About The Technology:
The Mako technology provides our expert orthopedic surgeons with patient-specific 3-D models to pre-plan Hip Replacement Procedures. During the procedure, our surgeons guide the Mako robotic-arm based on the patient specific plan. The technology also assists our surgeons in perfectly positioning any implants based on exactly on the patients anatomy.

What is Makoplasty?
The Makoplasty Advantage
It all begins with a CT scan of your joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the Mako system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan.
In the Operating Room
In the operating room, your surgeon will use Mako to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery, if needed. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the Mako system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant as well as decreased damage to the surrounding muscle and tissues.
