The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center is proud to offer the latest human-interactive surgical robotic arm technology in the Tristate. The MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing and MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement procedures are performed using the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System marketed by MAKO Surgical Corp. RIO is a surgeon-controlled robotic arm system that enables accurate alignment and placement of implants.
Accuracy is key in planning and performing both partial knee and total hip procedures. In order to provide patients the best outcome, the implant must be aligned and positioned just right. RIO® enables surgeons to personalize partial knee and total hip arthroplasties to achieve optimal results at a level of accuracy and reproducibility previously unattainable with conventional instrumentation.
