Mako Robotic Arm for Knee & Hip Replacement
High tech tool in the hands of highly trained surgeons takes orthopedic care to a whole new level
Advanced Orthopedics at Pioneers Medical Center now combines the world-class talent of our surgeons with state-of-the-art Mako Robotics.
Fellowship-trained in total joint replacement surgery, Dr. Kevin Borchard and Dr. Dan Ward now have the most advanced technology at their fingertips to provide each patient with a highly precise and personalized surgical experience. The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System transforms the way knee and hip replacements are performed. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, the surgeons at Pioneers Medical Center use the Mako System to precisely identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. This facilitates ideal implant sizing and positioning that can result in a more natural feeling joint following surgery and more rapid recover than traditional joint replacement surgery.
It is important to note that the Mako Robotic-Arm doesn’t replace our surgeons; it simply allows them to fully leverage their training to perform joint replacement surgery much more precisely while reducing risks. Mako puts information at our surgeon’s fingertips that they’ve never had access before, enabling them to have a more predictable surgical experience.
The Mako System offers the following potential benefits to our patients:
- Smaller incision and less scarring
- Reduced risk of infection
- Minimal hospitalization
- More rapid recovery
- Less risk of implant dislocation, loosening and mechanical problems
- Reduce need for future revision surgery
Since 2007, more than 83,000 total procedures, including total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements have been performed with Mako. The Advanced Orthopedic team at Pioneers Medical Center is proud to be one of the first hospitals in Colorado to combine this state-of-the-art technology with the skill of our fellowship-trained surgeons to provide our patients with the expertise they need to enjoy life without joint pain.
