Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure powered by highly advanced robotic arm technology for those suffering with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis – offering more precise replacement of the diseased portion of your knee and saving as much of the healthy part of your knee as possible. This can result in shorter hospitalization, faster recovery, and rapid return to daily activities with a more natural feeling knee.

Come to a seminar on April 24th and hear Dr. Chris Browne, Dr. Sarat Kunpuli and Dr. David Nonweiler talk about Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Surgery and find out how this innovative treatment option could help you.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee include:
• Pain while standing or walking short distances, climbing up or down stairs, or getting in and out of chairs
• Pain with activity
• Start up pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position
• Joint stiffness after getting out of bed
• Swelling in one or more areas of the knee
• A grating sensation or crunching feeling in the knee during use

 

How is OA treated?
Whether your OA is mild or severe, your physician will most likely recommend certain lifestyle changes to reduce stress on your knee joints. Additional disease and pain management strategies may include: physical therapy, steroid injections, over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or topical pain-relieving creams.
