MAKOplasty Robotic Partial Knee Resurfacing

A New Option for Knee Patients with Knee Pain

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?


Robotic Surgery

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 Robotic 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
