Unicompartmental Knee Resurfacing
If you have arthritis localized to the medial (inner) or lateral (outer) compartments of your knee and nonoperative management has failed to control your knee pain you may be a candidate for unicompartmental resurfacing. Using minimally invasive surgical techniques the involved compartment can be resurfaced with size matched prosthetic components. This procedure can be performed with traditional instruments or with robotic assistance. The Mako robot allows precise presurgical planning of component size and placement and during surgery enhances the accuracy of component placement compared to traditional methods. This procedure can substantially reduce or eliminate your arthritis pain.
