Mako Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early-to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA). Instead of replacing the knee, our trained surgeons use the special robotic arm to resurface damaged areas of the joint, sparing healthy bone and tissue. The potential benefits:

  • Smaller Incisions, less scaring, less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to daily activities
  • More natural knee motion

Mako Total Hip Replacement is a breakthrough solution for adults suffering from painful degenerative joint disease of the hip who need a total hip replacement. The potential benefits:

  • Increased accuracy of implant placement
  • Decreased risk of leg length discrepancy
  • Longer lifetime of the implant

Anna Jaques will be hosting FREE seminars twice a month given by orthopedic surgeons from Seacoast Orthopedics Associates and Sports Medicine North who perform Mako procedures.  The first one will be held January 11, 2016. Click here to register.
