Sharp Coronado offers partial and total joint replacement via MAKOplasty® (MAKO), which is an innovative solution for people who are suffering from hip or knee pain. Using advanced, robotic arm-assisted technology, surgeons get real-time information and images to help them identify and remove only the damaged parts of the hip and/or knee, which generates precise, accurate results.
Why Get Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery?
Hip and knee replacement surgery is a surgical procedure in which the arthritic hip and knee joint is replaced by implants. Many people turn to this replacement surgery when other therapies, including medication, exercise and joint injections, stop working effectively.
