What Steps Will be Taken?
Once our specialists in Arizona have determined you are a candidate for a partial knee replacement, a CT scan of the knee is performed. From this scan, a 3D virtual model of your knee is created. Greater Phoenix Orthopedics will use this model to evaluate your unique bony anatomy and soft tissue alignment to determine the proper size and placement of your implants. During the procedure, Mako provides us feedback while removing the arthritic bone and cartilage. The Mako’s virtual boundary provides tactile and auditory cues that ensure your implants are placed based on your surgical plan.
