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.

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.
