MAKOPlasty partial knee replacement testimonial

Share this post

Jerry came to The Stone Clinic to have a MAKOPlasty partial knee replacement, a much less invasive procedure than a total knee replacement. Using a robot to assist him in surgery, orthopaedic surgeon Kevin R. Stone, MD can achieve precise placement and alignment of the implant parts. Compared to the Total Knee Replacement, which he'd had in his other knee, Jerry noticed that the pain in the partial knee was much less severe.

Avoid joint replacement
You are told you have knee arthritis. The advice the doctor gives you is to go home, rest your knee, take anti-inflammatory drugs, lose some weight, wait until you are older and then get an artificial knee replacement. This advice is awful. Here's why.
The Bias of Your Surgeon
Every surgeon has a different skill set—and it’s important that their preferences align with yours.
A CT scan of your knee is used to build a computer model, which robotically guides the surgeon to precisely replace the joint, resulting in better alignment and reducing the risk of early wear. However, getting your insurance company to cover this cost is not easy.
