Makoplasty Partial Knee Replacement-  My patient allowed me to record and share the video below.  She underwent a relatively new procedure called Makoplasty Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement.  This procedure utilizes robotic technology which allows precise and ideal placement of the partial knee replacement components.  The robotic technology also allows for minimally invasive techniques which improve our ability to place the implants in a very safe anatomical manner while not traumatizing good tissue.  This procedure is not a substitute for a total knee replacement however it is an excellent option for patients who have well localized arthritis of the knee in only one or possibly two areas.  For example, a patient who has knee pain mostly on the inner side of the knee and whose plain X-Rays show severe arthritis only on the inner side of the knee may be a candidate for a Makoplasty partial knee replacement.  To find out if you are a candidate for this procedure all you need is an exam and good quality plain X-Rays.  The Makoplasty Partial Knee Replacement is not done at all hospitals.  St. Joseph Hospital in Orange is one of the few places in Southern California doing the procedure.
