Knee replacement

A total knee replacement involves the entire joint. But if only one section of the knee has been damaged, surgeons can replace just the damaged portion of the knee joint. This is called a partial knee replacement.

Total hip replacement

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, and both sections of the joint are removed and replaced in a total hip replacement procedure.

New Treatment Robotic Assisted Orthopedic Surgery

Mako robotic assisted orthopedic surgery is used for partial and total knee replacements and total hip replacements at Steward Health's St. Elizabeth's campus. We use a computerized tomography (CT) scan to plan exactly how much bone should be removed and to aid in maximizing the accuracy of the alignment and placement of the implant. Our orthopedic surgeons follow this plan with precision during surgery with the help of the Mako robotics.

Provides a more natural feeling joint after surgery

Smaller incision with less scarring

Shorter downtime and faster recovery

Precise placement of the implant

Robotic assisted surgery provides tactile, visual and auditory feedback to assist the orthopedic surgeon in achieving the desired orientation, which can enhance stability and mobility. During joint replacement procedures, the surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage and replaces it with artificial components made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers.
