Leading Robotic Knee Replacement in Phoenix

If you suffer from increasing joint pain in your knee, have a limited range of mobility, and are currently takings NSAIDs for inflammation and pain, then you may be suffering from knee degeneration or osteoarthritis. More than 27 million Americans suffer from this condition or have similar issues due to sudden injury to the knee or ongoing stress to the joint. Traditional solutions for this condition include lifestyle changes, weight loss, wearing compression sleeves, and supplementing your diet with Vitamin D, fish oil, glucosamine and other nutrients. Unfortunately, none of these treatments will offer much relief if you already suffer from severe bone degradation in your knee. In these cases, total knee replacement surgery may be warranted. At The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital, we offer the latest surgical solutions for patients suffering from this condition. Our signature Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted procedure utilizes the latest technology to replace your knee and provide you with permanent relief.

Advanced Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted technology

Once we’ve consulted with you and determined that knee replacement is an appropriate solution for your condition, we’ll perform a CT scan of the diseased knee joint. This scan is uploaded to our proprietary Mako system, where a 3D digital model is rendered. This model is used to create a personalized surgery plan that is unique to your anatomy. On the day of the operation, your surgeon will follow this surgical plan utilizing Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted technology. The surgeon will prepare the specified area of your knee by removing diseased bone and cartilage with extreme precision and preparing the area for the Triathlon Total Knee Implant. This state-of-the-art device allows for more circular motion of the knee than traditional implants and has been used in the medical community for over a decade. Our Mako system allows for extremely accurate placement of implants and our surgeons have an unmatched eye for detail. Find out more about this signature system by contacting us today.

What you should know

While the Mako system utilizes the latest robotic technology, it’s important to understand that a surgeon will still be in complete control of your operation and guiding the tool’s use. All medical decisions and actions are your surgeon’s to make. Our Mako system allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your surgical plan as needed. Mako’s technology simply allows us to be more precise and can help ensure a better outcome. Recovery time and the required physical therapy may vary based on your current health condition and unique needs. Give yourself a new lease on life and free yourself from the ongoing pain that osteoarthritis brings. Call The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital today to find out how we can best serve you.
