MAKOplasty® / Partial Knee Resurfacing for Knee Osteoarthritis

Makoplasty Uniknee replacement for Knee Arthritis

MAKOplastyŽ Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to midstage osteoarthritis (OA) in either the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or lateral (outer) compartments of the knee. It is powered by the RIOŽ Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing.

The RIOŽ System empowers surgeons and hospitals to address the needs of a large and growing, yet currently underserved patient population. Patients who desire a restoration of lifestyle, minimized surgery, reduced pain and rapid recovery may benefit from MAKOplastyŽ.

During the procedure, the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again. MAKOplastyŽ Partial Knee Resurfacing can:

  • Facilitate optimal implant positioning to result in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional knee replacement surgery
  • Be performed on an outpatient basis
  • Promote a rapid relief from pain and return to daily activities

As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplastyŽ is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.

Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System (RIOŽ)

The RIOŽ Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System features three dimensional pre-surgical planning. During surgery, the RIOŽ provides the surgeon with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback to facilitate optimal joint resurfacing and implant positioning. It is this optimal placement that can result in more natural knee motion following surgery.

RIOŽ Features:

  • Accurately plan implant size, orientation and alignment utilizing CT-derived 3-D modeling
  • Enabling the pre-resection capture of patient-specific kinematic tracking through full flexion and extension
  • Real-time intra-operative adjustments for correct knee kinematics and soft-tissue balance
  • Minimally invasive and bone sparing, with minimal tissue trauma for faster recovery
