Because MAKOplasty® can be performed through a relatively small incision of 3 to 4 inches long, it does not interrupt the main muscle controlling the knee. During surgery, less bone is removed from the knee and there is less trauma to the soft tissue surrounding it. And since the majority of the knee joint remains untouched, the procedure is less invasive and often results in a knee that feels more natural post-operatively. This results in minimal hospitalization and quicker recovery time than compared to a total knee replacement. Rehabilitation is more progressive and may only require 3 – 4 weeks of physical therapy.
