Makoplasty Singapore – Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement

member-sticker-for-webA new, less invasive partial knee replacement surgery, MAKOplasty is now in Singapore. MAKOplasty is a robotic arm assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to help  your surgeon accurately perform a partial knee replacement while sparing the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. Here’s a short video introduction.

This can potentially result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional total knee replacement surgery.

Prior to the surgery, the patient undergoes a CT scan of the affected knee and lower limb to obtain a 3D model of the knee. This allows us to do precise pre-operative planning where we choose the size and actual positioning of the implants.

Our knee surgeon, Dr Kevin Lee performs his partial knee replacements via a minimally invasive approach with a small skin incision. This approach, coupled with the preservation of your own natural bone and tissue along with more accurate patient specific implant positioning may also result in a more natural feeling knee. And since healthy bone is preserved, patients who undergo MAKOplasty partial knee replacement can still be a candidate for a total knee replacement procedure later in life if necessary.

The MAKOplasty procedure is indicated for patients suffering from single compartment arthritis of the knee.  If you have 2 or even all 3 compartments of the knee affected by arthritis, a total knee replacement would be more suitable for you.
