Mako® robotic-arm assisted surgical systemAn advancement in knee replacement surgery

The Mako® system is an advancement in the way orthopaedic surgeons perform partial and total knee replacements.

The technology comprises a surgical planning and navigation system combined with a robotic arm that is guided by our skilled surgeons.

Surgeons use Mako® software to create a bespoke plan based on your individual anatomy.

During the procedure, this detailed plan is used to ensure accurate removal of damaged bone and cartilage as well as precise positioning of the implant.

This improved accuracy can mean less pain after your operation and a quicker recovery time. It can also lead to improved feel and function in your new knee.1
