When it comes to knee replacement, we understand the importance of feeling confident with your care team and surgery plan before you ever enter the operating room. That's why Saint Agnes Medical Center is thrilled to be the first area hospital to offer Mako SmartRobotics™ assisted surgery as an innovative option for patients seeking total or partial knee replacement.

Every patient we care for has a unique anatomy with specific surgical needs, which is why our surgeons work closely with you from your first appointment to create an individualized surgery plan – just for you! With the help of virtual 3D CT-based modeling software, the Mako SmartRobtoics™ system allows your surgeon to personalize your surgical plan pre-operatively, so there is a clear plan for how the surgeon will position the implant long before your surgery date. During the procedure, your surgeon can validate that plan and use the robotic arm to make any necessary adjustments with a high level of accuracy and predictability.

Patients who receive Mako-assisted knee replacements experience less post-operative pain, speedier recovery times and better outcomes than those placed by traditional surgical methods. Because of more-precise placement and reduced complications, the implants also last longer before needing repairs.

Whether you're preparing for knee surgery or you're heading in for your first appointment, feel good knowing our orthopaedic team will build the care program you need to get back to the things you love.

"Mako is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed," says Saint Agnes Orthopaedic Surgeon Matthew Knedel, MD.
