Mako Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Advanced Option Available

Foothills Hospital is the first facility in Colorado to offer a new advanced surgical option for patients needing total knee replacement. Innovative Mako technology provides each patient with a personalized surgical plan based on their unique anatomy. Mako surgery can reduce pain and shorten recovery time, getting you back to the activities you love.

The Mako process starts with a CT scan of the patient’s knee joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of their unique anatomy. This model is loaded into the Mako system software and is used to create a personalized pre-operative plan.

The Mako process for knee replacement is used in the operating room to assist the surgeon. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the Mako system’s robotic arm guides him within the optimal surgical area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of the knee implant.
