MAKOplasty® at Saint Anne’s Hospital

MAKOplasty at Saint Anne’s Hospital First hospital in southeastern Massachusetts to introduce this innovative alternative to total hip and knee replacements

Saint Anne’s Hospital, the first hospital in Massachusetts to offer MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing to those suffering from early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee, is helping patients restore their knees and return to doing the activities they once performed.

MAKOplasty® 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

Saint Anne's 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 Saint Anne’s specialty trained, MAKOplasty®-certified orthopedic surgeons.
