Partial Knee Resurfacing

If you have knee pain caused by early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, robotic-assisted MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing at EvergreenHealth may help you return to your regular activities pain-free.

Because it selectively targets just the part of your knee damaged by osteoarthritis, MAKOplasty® can resurface your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.

An implant is then secured in the joint to allow it to move smoothly again.

MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing combines computer navigation, a 3-dimensional CT scan and a surgeon-actuated robotic arm for increased surgical precision.

MAKOplasty® can often be performed through a four to six inch incision over your knee with small incisions in both your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin).

This minimally invasive approach also means less pain, a short hospital stay, reduced blood loss, less scarring and a quicker return to your life.

Because MAKOplasty® preserves your own natural bone and tissue along with more ideal patient specific implant positioning, the procedure may also result in a more natural feeling knee.

And since healthy bone is preserved, patients who undergo MAKOplasty® partial knee procedures may still be a candidate for a total knee replacement procedure later in life if necessary.
