Florida Hospital DeLand is proud to be the first facility in Central Florida to offer an innovative treatment option for patients living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee.

MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing

This minimally-invasive procedure can offer patients relief from pain and the restoration of an active lifestyle. Powered by robotic arm technology, MAKOplasty® enables the surgeon to precisely resurface only the arthritic area, while preserving healthy tissue and bone and optimally positioning the partial knee implants. The MAKOplasty® procedure is performed through a smaller incision than those used for other knee replacement surgeries, often requires a shorter hospital stay, and enables patients to return to normal activities faster than with traditional surgery.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be a MAKOplasty®  candidate:

  • Knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee
  • Start up knee pain or stiffness when beginning activities from a sitting position
  • No improvement after trying non-surgical treatments or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication

Consistently Reproducible Precision

From a blade skiving through a cutting guide or a template not optimally balanced or placed, traditional jig-based resection can compromise implant performance. Now there's an option that enhances performance; the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopaedic System.

MAKO View is a publication dedicated to providing information, data, perspective and opinions on healthcare and economics related to the new orthopaedic solution, MAKOplasty®.

“The real advantage of MAKOplasty ® is the technology which allows us to
  implant the prosthesis far more accurately than we’ve ever been able to do.”
