Modern technique for Joint replacement

MAKOplasty® with the use of a Robotic Arm

We are completely prepared in terms of computer software to use this technology for both knee and hip replacement surgeries. 

mako_physician_education_40With the efficiency of this technology and the expertise and experience of our team of doctors, surgery performed with robotic arm allows a surgeon to more accurately place the artificial joint. This lengthens the usage life of the artificial joint. Furthermore, the robotic arm enables the surgeon to remove only the parts of the bone that are necessary, reducing pain and speeding up the recovery process.
