MEET MAKO: The latest in joint replacement surgery
DR. CHHADIA ON WGN RADIO: Mako revolutionizes surgery and recovery
Suburban Orthopaedics is proud to be among the first in our area to offer this innovative joint replacement technology. The Mako System is the first and only robotic technology that can be used across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip, and partial knee replacements. Suburban Orthopaedics’ Dr. Howard Freedberg and Dr. Ankur Chhadia are certified in Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery.
The Mako Total Knee application is a knee replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, our surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation, and alignment based on each patient’s unique diagnosis and anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.
This latest advancement in joint replacement surgery transforms the way total knee replacements are performed.
