MAKO Robotic System

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an established and successful procedure for the treatment of end-stage knee arthritis. MAKO Smart Robotics combines three key components, 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop™ haptic technology and insightful data analytics, into one platform which, in comparison to manual techniques, has been shown in cadaveric and clinical settings to have increased accuracy and precision of component placement to plan. These achievements were accomplished, in part, by preoperative three-dimensional planning, which takes into account each patient’s specific anatomy. This plan can be virtually modified intraoperatively to address implant alignment, soft tissue balancing and flexion contractures.  

Additional features include intraoperative visual, auditory and tactile feedback provided to the user. The robotic-arm assisted option that prevents the sawblade from cutting outside the designated surgical field.
