Mako robotic-arm assistance
Patient-specific pre-operative plan enables more accurate implant positioning.14, 98-101
A 3-D model of the patient’s anatomy is generated from a pre-operative CT Scan. This offers a virtual view of the entire joint from all angles.
This virtual model is used to plan the initial implant size, orientation and alignment. The plan is reviewed and approved by the surgeon pre-operatively.
The Mako System offers the ability to intra-operatively fine tune planned implant placement to accommodate hard and soft tissue anatomy for potentially optimized implant articulation and ligament balancing.50-51
Robotic-arm assistedbone preparation
Mako robotic-arm assistance allows for controlled resurfacing within a pre-defined resection volume and provides 3-D visualization of patient anatomy and real time resection progress.
