Congratulations to Sinai-Grace’s orthopedic team who were the first to bring a new partial knee replacement procedure called Makoplasty to Detroit.
The Makoplasty procedure is a robotic arm assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to target just the parts of your knee damaged by arthritis and spare the healthy bone and ligaments. Robotic surgery requires smaller incisions, less time on the table and recovery for the patient, and more accuracy using the 3-D imaging of the patient’s CT Scan during surgery.
There’s an entire team of skilled, experienced and caring staff members who help patients throughout the knee replacement journey at Sinai-Grace.
It begins with a “Joint Camp” where class leaders explain the entire process so patients know what to expect from beginning to end. When the day comes for the procedure, the pre-op team preps the patient before the Sinai-Grace surgical staff uses robotic technology to create a precisely-aligned knee. Finally, the rehabilitation team takes over to get the patient back on their feet, sometimes the very same day, to begin the healing process.
We salute the entire team who come together to create a safe and caring environment for surgical patients.
