Following Anesthesia, we begin the procedure which typically takes between 2-3 hours. We follow the original incision and expose your knee joint to examine the soft tissue and look for signs of infection. We will assess the components of the knee to determine which parts need to be revised. Original implants will be removed and we’ll proceed with preparing the bone surfaces for the revision implant, adding metal augments or blocks if significant bone loss has occurred. Lastly, we will insert the new implant and repair any surrounding tissue that may be damaged. A final test of the joint motion is conducted before closing your knee up and preparing you for recovery. All while utilizing MAKO robotic technology.
