Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is a degenerative condition that results in the loss of joint cartilage (the cushioning between the bones).
Total knee replacement (TKR) is performed to remove the damaged bone tissues and replace them with artificial components (also called implants or prostheses) in order to relieve pain and restore normal function.
Patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, who have symptoms such as knee pain, swelling and knee locking, and who have not responded to conservative treatments, are candidates for surgery with the Mako Knee system.
MAKO Knee system is available at a Hospital our physicians operate at near our Los Gatos office.
Other Robots that are used by our surgeons are available at Hospitals (which our physicians can operate at) near Capitola, Walnut Creek Redwood and Walnut Creek Sequoia offices.
