Predictable. Personal. Precise.
Orthopedic & Sport Institute of the Fox Valley wants to ensure patients have the very best surgical experience. Mako SmartRobotics technology is one of the tools OSI uses to achieve this. The Mako combines three key components: 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop haptic technology, and data analytics into one platform that has demonstrated better outcomes for hip and total- and partial-knee replacement patients.
How does Mako Robotic Technology work?
The Mako technology allows your OSI surgeon to use a CT scan to create a 3D model of your knee’s unique anatomy. The personalized 3D plan takes into account each patient’s specific anatomy and ligament balance to ensure your OSI knee surgeon can see all angles of your knee and to create a surgery plan that can be adjusted if necessary during the surgery.
During the operation, your OSI surgeon uses the robotic arm to assist in performing your knee surgery. The surgeon guides the robotic arm within the predefined area, and the robotic arm technology helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries, which creates a more accurate and better-aligned knee replacement.
