MAKOplasty: Robot-Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing
New Option for Knee Patients
In partnership with Baptist Health, Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute provides a minimally-invasive Partial Knee Resurfacing, called MAKOplasty. JOI surgeons have performed more of these surgical procedures than any other provider in the region.
How does it work?
The surgeon uses a highly-advanced robotic arm system to precisely remove and repair only the damaged portion of the knee. A small implant is positioned in the knee while preserving healthy bone, tissue and cartilage while alleviating knee pain and restoring natural function. Recovery time is about six weeks-half the time of a total knee replacement.
What are the Benefits of MAKOplasty Knee Resurfacing?
- Accelerated recovery, and a shorter hospital stay
- Smaller incision (less scarring)
- Better knee function and range of motion
- A more natural-feeling knee
