Brookings Health System now offers the latest advancement in robotic-arm assisted knee replacement with Mako Partial Knee and Mako Total Knee.

Partial Knee Replacement

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted partial knee replacement is a treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. Depending on where the arthritis affects the knee, patients may have an implant inserted in any of the following areas:

Total Knee Replacement

In comparison, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee replacement is a treatment option for adults living with mid to late-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. With Mako Total Knee replacement, the entire knee joint is replaced and the surgeon inserts a Triathlon Total Knee implant. Triathlon knee replacements are different than traditional knee replacements because they are designed to work with the body to promote natural-like circular motion.
