Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement
Passionate about treating patients using the latest advancements in orthopedic care, Crescent City Orthopedics proudly offers robotic-assisted knee replacement for greater precision and shorter recovery times.
Board-certified orthopedic surgeons and joint replacement specialists Dr. William Junius and Dr. Scott Buhler have completed additional training in Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology and are dedicated to providing their patients with the latest techniques, performing more Mako robotic joint replacements than anyone in the New Orleans metro area.
Joint pain can occur for many different reasons, and depending on the reason and the severity of the joint condition, it may affect the method of treatment. Common conditions treated with a knee replacement are arthritis and joint degeneration. Pain from these conditions can vary—it can be constant or sporadic and occur during movement or after a period of rest.
Often, patients will use medication or other conservative treatments to treat knee pain. If these methods don’t provide adequate relief, an expert may recommend a Mako® Robotic-Assisted procedure for a total knee replacement.
How Mako Works
Mako is an innovative method of treatment for those suffering from arthritis of the knee. It uses 3D CT-based planning software, allowing your surgeon to better understand your anatomy, personalize your surgical plan, and perform the procedure more effectively.
During the procedure, your surgeon prepares the bone for the implant and guides the robotic arm. Mako’s AccuStop™ technology helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined in the personalized surgical plan, protecting healthy bones and tissues.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology can offer better outcomes compared to traditional knee replacement, including less pain and shorter recovery times, as well as the following benefits:
- Detailed presurgical plan
- Advanced precision in placing implant
- Helps preserve healthy bone and tissue
- Minimal blood loss and less scarring
