Makoplasty in Palm Beach County – MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) in either the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or lateral (outer) 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.

The RIO® System enables surgeons and hospitals to address the needs of a large and growing, yet currently underserved patient population. Patients who desire a return to their previous lifestyle with reduced pain and want a minimally invasive procedure and rapid recovery may benefit from MAKOplasty®.

What is the Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System (RIO®)?


The RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System features three-dimensional pre-surgical planning. During surgery, the RIO® provides the surgeon with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback to facilitate optimal joint resurfacing and implant positioning. It is this optimal placement that can result in more natural knee motion following surgery.
RIO® Features:
• Accurately plan the implant size, orientation and alignment utilizing CT-derived 3-D modeling
• Enabling the pre-resection capture of patient-specific kinematic tracking through full flexion and extension
• Real-time intra-operative adjustments for correct knee kinematics and soft-tissue balance
• Minimally invasive and bone sparing, with minimal tissue trauma for faster recovery
