MAKOplasty® Robotic Assisted Surgery at Norwood Hospital

Orthopedic services have expanded at Norwood Hospital with the addition of MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing and MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement, new surgical options for patients suffering from early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee and hip.

MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative, robotic-arm assisted procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration and can offer the following benefits:

  • Improved surgical outcomes resulting in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Less implant wear and loosening
  • Joint resurfacing
  • Bone sparing
  • Smaller incision
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Rapid recovery

Norwood Hospital also offers MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement as an alternative to traditional total hip replacement surgeries. MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement can offer the following benefits over traditional total hip replacement:

  • Accurate placement of the hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system. This can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation.
  • More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift.
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together. This may improve the lifetime of the implant.

These state-of-the-art treatments are an alternative to traditional hip and knee replacement surgeries. These are performed by Norwood’s specialty trained, MAKOplasty®-certified orthopedic surgeons.
