The MAKOplasty® Advantage
MAKOplasty® Joint Replacement Surgery - the state-of-the-art at Danbury Orthopedics
MAKOplasty® is the latest innovation in surgical treatment for total hip or partial knee replacement. The system uses 3-D mapping and robotic technology to conduct procedures that are more precise and less invasive than ever before. Danbury Orthopedics is pleased to make this important robot assisted surgical breakthrough available to our patients.
Two of our renowned joint specialists – Dr. Robert Deveney and Dr. John Dunleavy – are skilled in this state-of-the-art surgery. Dr. Deveney was the first orthopedic surgeon in Connecticut to perform a MAKOplasty procedure.
If you are suffering with the debilitating pain of degenerative joint disease of the knee or hip, you may be a candidate for MAKOplasty.
The benefits include:
- Superior precision in resurfacing the arthritic portion of the joint
- Preservation of healthy tissue and bone
- Optimal implant positioning for a more natural feel
- Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
We’re pleased to offer MAKOplasty as the latest advance in restoring patient mobility and active lifestyle. Consult your Danbury Orthopedics specialist to see if you are a candidate for this type of surgery.
MAKOplasty® for the Knee
By selectively targeting the damaged part of your knee, your Danbury Orthopedics surgeon can resurface the joint while sparing the surrounding healthy bone and ligaments.
Unlike more invasive procedures MAKOplasty can often be performed through an incision of just four to six inches. Because MAKOplasty helps preserve healthy bone and tissue, and because it helps position the implant with exceptional precision, patients may ultimately experience a more natural feeling knee.
MAKOplasty® for the Hip
Patients in need of hip replacement may be a candidate for MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty. The innovative robotic technology provides a patient-specific 3-D model to assist your surgeon in pre-operative planning. During the procedure, real-time feedback (tactile, visual and auditory) assists your surgeon in preparing the hip joint and placing the implants in the desired orientation with unprecedented accuracy.
When MAKOplasty is appropriate, it can help your surgeon achieve optimal precision for faster recovery and more reliable outcomes.
