Partial Knee Resurfacing

Cabell Huntington Hospital is proud to be the only hospital within a 100-mile radius offering MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing, an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to midstage osteoarthritis in either the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or both compartments of the knee. It is powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing.

Unlike total knee replacement, MAKOplasty® is a resurfacing of the joint with much less bone being removed. Soft tissues and ligaments remain untouched, which allows for an overall less invasive procedure. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again. MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing can:

  • Offer the best implant positioning to result in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional knee replacement surgery
  • Be performed on an outpatient basis
  • Promote a rapid relief from pain and return to daily activities

As a knee arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty® is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
