Robotic Partial Knee Replacement (MAKOplasty®)

  • Understanding the Procedure

    Robotic partial knee replacement (MAKOplasty®) is a surgical treatment designed to relieve pain in the knee caused by the wear and tear of joint cartilage. The partial knee resurfacing procedure is done using a robotic arm, which lets the surgeon treat only the damaged part of the knee. The nature of the procedure allows healthy bone and ligaments surrounding the damaged area to be spared from trauma.

    This procedure is suited for adults suffering knee pain from osteoarthritis in 1 of the 3 knee compartments, but is ineligible for a total knee replacement.

  • The MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing procedure is designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration and potentially offers the following benefits:

    • Less damage to surround bone and tissue
    • Smaller incisions, thus reduced blood loss, less pain, less scarring and faster recovery
  • At Mount Elizabeth Hospitals, we are committed to giving you comprehensive care. Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, nurses and therapists are here to guide you through the entire treatment and recovery process.

    Patients can benefit from Mount Elizabeth Hospitals' modern equipment and facilities. Minimally invasive techniques reduce trauma and scarring while improving success rates and recovery speed, while computer-aided robotic surgery allows for added precision during surgical procedures.
