MAKO™ Total Hip Replacement
Dunham Orthopaedics in Oklahoma City is proud to offer MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, the latest advancement in robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery for total hip and partial knee replacement surgery. This advanced technology is a remarkable tool in the battle against hip and knee pain.
What is MAKOplasty®?
MAKOplasty is a robotic-arm assisted procedure that is used to perform total hip replacement or partial knee resurfacing, in addition to joint resurfacing. MAKOplasty is supported by the RIO (Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System), and was designed to help patients who suffer from degenerative joint diseases.
The MAKO procedure enables Dr. Dunham to reach a new level of precision using the latest technology. The RIO robotic arm provides surgeons with a 3-D model to help prepare them for the upcoming surgery, and enables them to plan the placement of the hip or knee implants prior to surgery.
The Benefits of MAKOplasty
- Quicker relief from pain
- Improved surgical outcomes
- Quicker recovery–from months to weeks
- Smaller incision, less scarring
- Reduced blood loss during surgery
- Shorter hospital stay
- A more natural-feeling joint following surgery

A recent clinical study has found that 89% of patients who have undergone a unicompartmental knee arthroscopy procedure (such as MAKOplasty®) are “very satisfied” or “satisfied” at two years after the procedure.
What Surgeons Say About MAKO
The MAKO system uses advanced 3D imaging of your hip or knee to produce a pre-operative plan, customized to each patient’s unique anatomy and condition.
The 3D model of your affected joint provides Dunham Orthopaedics an unparalleled level of accuracy in performing a total hip replacement or partial knee replacement.
MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is now available for partial knee replacements and total hip replacements. It all begins with a CT scan of your joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the MAKO system software and is used to create your personalized pre-operative plan.
How the MAKO Procedure Works
From there, Dr. Dunham uses the MAKO to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The MAKO system also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted surgery is customized for your individual anatomy.
When Dr. Dunham prepares the bone for the implant, the MAKO system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.
Don’t let chronic knee and hip pain keep you from what you love most.
