Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
An alternative to traditional knee and hip replacement surgery, Trumbull Regional Medical Center offers innovative Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for increased precision of partial knee, total knee and total hip replacement procedures. Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery typically results in faster recovery time, less blood loss, smaller incisions and less pain.
This cutting-edge technology uses GPS software to allow placement of a patient’s hip or knee implants with an accuracy that was never before possible. This accuracy leads to a lower rate of revision and improved longevity of the implants.
The benefits of a Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery may include:
- Improved surgical outcomes resulting in a more natural feeling joint following surgery
- Less implant wear and loosening
- Joint resurfacing
- Bone sparing
- Smaller incision
- Less scarring
- Reduced blood loss
- Shorter hospitalization
- Rapid recovery
