Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
While partial knee replacement accounts for less than 10% of all knee arthroplasty performed, studies have indicated the incidence could be 20% or more depending on timing of surgery with the disease process.1
Mako Partial Knee Technology facilitates enhanced precision2,3 and enables you to perform technically challenging partial knee procedures.
