OrthoAspen’s knee patients benefit from advanced Mako technology.
At OrthoAspen, we are dedicated to offering patients comprehensive care for chronic orthopedic conditions. That means we prioritize a robust use of both conservative physical therapies and the most advanced surgical technology within our treatment regimes.
For patients who have experienced erosion of the knee joint as a consequence of arthritis, conservative treatment options alone are often insufficient. If your osteoarthritis is in an advanced stage and has compromised your knee joint to a serious degree, total knee replacement Mako surgery may offer the best chance of long-term symptom relief and the return to an active, healthy lifestyle.
The use of Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for total knee replacement procedures has enabled the knee specialists of OrthoAspen to offer patients innovative care with increased reliability and dramatically improved results compared with conventional knee replacement surgery.
