Mako robotic-arm assisted technology with the Triathlon Total Knee implant is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are performed. Mako technology allows surgeons to provide a personalized surgical experience based on each patient's specific diagnosis and unique anatomy.
It is important to understand the meaning of robotic-arm assisted surgery. Before surgery, the orthopaedic surgeon uses the Mako system software to plan the procedure. During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage according to the surgical plan. Then the surgeon inserts the Triathlon Total Knee implant.
Mountain View is home to the only fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon in North Central Arkansas. At SCMC, we address routine hand and upper extremity conditions such as arthritis, carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome, and trigger finger, as well as, complex nerve and tendon injuries. Combined with our Sports Medicine expertise, we treat orthopaedic conditions from the shoulder to finger.
When a damaged or diseased joint causes pain and disability, joint replacement surgery may be recommended. Stone County Medical Center uses a comprehensive approach to joint replacement surgery that focuses on care coordination, patient and family education, and hospital processes. Our goals are to provide every patient with a personalized experience and excellent outcome.
