If your constant hip or knee pain is limiting your quality of life, you may be a candidate for Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery.
Our expert surgeons use the 3D modeling capabilities of the Mako surgery system to create a personalized surgical plan. This plan helps your doctor precisely identify and remove only the arthritic parts of the hip or knee — preserving your healthy bone, tissue and ligaments and getting you back to enjoying life quickly.
You may be eligible for joint replacement if you fail to respond to nonsurgical treatments or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication and have severe hip or knee pain with activity. Your Sharp-affiliated orthopedic surgeon will carefully examine your condition and determine proper treatment to produce the best outcome for you.
At Sharp, we are proud to be the only hospital system in San Diego County to offer this technology for treating hip and knee pain, giving our Sharp-affiliated surgeons the tools to provide personalized care for every patient.
