Advanced robotics knee surgery helps with quick return
Having serious knee pain can really slow your lifestyle. For some people, total knee replacement is the best option.
Now at Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center, those who need knee replacement can have it done using the Mako robotics-assisted surgery.
Legacy Meridian Park in 2017 became the first medical center in Oregon to offer total knee replacement using the Mako robotics technology.
Nationwide, thousands upon thousands of people have undergone the surgery. "I am so happy I had my knee replaced with the Mako technology," one patient said.
For knees, robotics-assisted surgery offers many benefits. It allows the surgeon to remove less bone and precisely place the implant, resulting in a more natural-feeling knee. Other benefits:
Less wear on the implant
Smaller incision for less scarring
Less pain, faster recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional knee replacement surgery
Reduced blood loss
