State-of-the-art robotic technology for knee replacement

Wuesthoff Health System’s surgeons can perform MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement using the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System. This innovative robotic surgical procedure offers a minimally invasive option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. During the surgery, the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. The digital tracking system constantly monitors and updates the patient’s anatomy and allows the surgeon to make real-time adjustments to optimize implant positioning and placement.



MAKOplasty® offers a number of benefits over traditional techniques, including:

  • Optimal implant positioning that results in a more natural knee motion.
  • Less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
  • As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
