Computer and robotic-assisted knee and hip surgery using the Mako SmartRobotics™ system are performed by OSMI orthopedic surgeons. The system improves the accuracy and success of knee and hip joint replacement surgeries by utilizing sophisticated 3D CT-based planning software. This 3D modern technology allows your surgeon to know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan with improved clinical accuracy.
Comparison of Robotic Assisted Vs Conventional Joint Replacement
Benefits of the Robotic-assisted Knee and Hip Joint Replacement
- Anatomical and surgical accuracy – more accurate placement of the prosthetic implant with computer 3D modeling
- Improved joint motion and less pain – patients describe the feeling of natural joint motion a
- Decreased implant dislocation – preservation of healthy bone and soft tissue.
- Better Patient satisfaction scores

Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted total knee replacement is minimally invasive, thus allowing patients a faster recovery and they often go home after surgery rather than being admitted to the hospital.
Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted partial knee replacement is minimally invasive.
Robotic Assisted Hip Replacement
Robotic assisted total hip replacement is minimally invasive, thus allowing patients a faster recovery and they often go home after surgery rather than being admitted to the hospital. Total hip replacement can treat patients with degenerative joint disease that causes significant pain and limits function.
Robotic-assisted surgery and muscle-sparing approaches to hip replacement are designed to minimize the impact of surgery on your soft tissue and bone.
Periprosthetic Fracture After Total Knee and Hip Replacement
A periprosthetic fracture is a broken bone around the prosthetic pieces of a joint replacement due to a fall or an accident. Most patients with periprosthetic fractures around a knee or hip replacement are advanced in age and have poor bone quality (osteopenia).
Knee Periprosthetic Fractures
Knee periprosthetic fractures after total knee arthroplasty are fractures of the femur, tibia, and patella, and the most common pattern involves the supracondylar area of the distal femur. Improvements in quality of life and life expectancy have resulted in substantial increases in the incidence of total knee replacement or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and thus the likelihood of postoperative complications. In total knee replacement or total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the end of the femur bone and end of the tibia are removed and replaced. There are many difficulties and increased risk of nonunion after treatment because reduction and internal fixation are interfered with by preexisting prosthesis and bone cement.
Hip Periprosthetic Fractures
Periprosthetic fractures after total hip arthroplasty are increasingly common because patients are typically elderly, frail, and have osteoporosis.
Complex Surgical Revision Joint Replacement of the Knee and Hip
Revision knee or hip replacement is a more complicated surgery when compared to the initial joint replacement surgery. When implant failure occurs, another surgery may be needed to replace the failed implant, known as joint revision joint replacement surgery. Patients undergoing joint revision surgery require extensive pre-operative planning, utilization of specialized implants and tools, and mastery of difficult surgical techniques to accomplish good results. The OSMI orthopedic surgeons offer the innovative Mako Robotic Assisted Surgery System for knee and hip replacement procedures. This latest advancement in surgery is transforming the way joint replacement procedures are performed.
