Orthopedic Surgery

Preserving healthy bone and tissue

Does a knee injury or osteoarthritis have you watching life from the sidelines? The surgeons at Lakefield Regional Medical Center may have the solution to get your active lifestyle back. Advanced robotic orthopedic surgeries such as MAKOplasty®, a minimally invasive procedure on your knee can:

  • Save as much of your healthy bone and tissue as possible
  • Allow for a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay when compared to traditional knee replacement surgery
  • Promote a rapid relief from pain and return to daily activity

If you’re living with painful early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee that only affects one or two components of the knee, MAKOplasty — a minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing — could help. Using robotic surgical procedures, your medical team can exercise greater precision and control, which allows for smaller incisions and thus quicker recovery than total knee replacement surgery.

Robotic orthopedic surgery

Lakewood orthopedic surgeons use tactile, intelligent robotic arm technology and three-dimensional visualization of the knee to guide a controlled resurfacing of your pre-defined knee disease, saving as much of your healthy bone and surrounding tissue as possible.

A combination of computer modeling of your pre-surgical plan using CT scan data and real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback during the procedure facilitates ideal implant positioning and placement. This level of planning and surgical accuracy in treating earlier stage knee osteoarthritis can result in you having a more natural feeling knee.
