The first Mako-certified orthopedic surgeons in Rhode Island and New England offer you experience and a record of superior outcomes in knee resurfacing and total hip replacement.

Precision in Mako partial knee replacement, total knee replacement and total hip replacement

Mako combines the highly developed technology of an interactive 3-D visualization system and the RIO robotic arm, providing your surgeon with the consistent pinpoint accuracy necessary to repair the worn out bone and position the implant at the optimal angle. The surgical precision of the Mako system enhances mobility and implant longevity in both total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, and total hip replacement.

Experience matters

South County Hospital was the first hospital in New England to offer knee resurfacing and total hip replacement. The Orthopedic Center surgeons have performed more than 5,000 Mako surgeries to date with a record of superior outcomes. View a copy of our Quality & Outcomes Report >

How Mako works

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology is used for partial knee replacement, total knee replacement, and total hip replacement. The Mako technology provides your surgeon with a specific 3-D model of your anatomy to allow for a personalized surgical plan. Here's how it works:

1. Your Personalized Plan: It all begins with a CT scan of your joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the Mako system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan.

2. In the operating room, your surgeon will use Mako to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the Mako system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

3. After surgery, your surgeon, nurses and physical therapists will set goals with you to get you back on the move. They will closely monitor your condition and progress. Your surgeon may review an x-ray of your new partial knee with you.

Clinical Data Proves Benefits of Mako Knee and Hip Replacement

Recently released clinical research data confirms what many orthopedic surgeons recognized early on: Mako offers significant improvement in patient outcome for total hip replacementtotal knee placement and partial knee replacement because of the technology. These improved outcomes result from superior implant positioning, which directly affects patient mobility, implant longevity, and patient satisfaction. The studies compared Mako with “manual” procedures at a number of highly-regarded U.S. hospitals, performed by some of the most respected orthopedic surgeons in the country.
