Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery — Advanced Technology for Orthopedic Procedures

The Mako System is a Detroit Medical Center robotic-arm-assisted, partial or total knee replacement procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA). By selectively targeting the part of your knee damaged by OA, your DMC orthopedic surgeon can replace part or all of your knee while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments that surround it. The first Mako robotic-arm assisted joint replacement was done in December 2012. Since then, DMC orthopedic surgeons have performed more Mako hip and knee joint replacements than any other hospital in Michigan. Get more information.
