If You Suffer From Knee Pain Due to Osteoarthritis, MAKOplasty May Be Right for You!


Male Doctor Examining Male Patient With Knee Pain

More that 15 million people in the United States suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee. This can be extremely painful and prevent you from doing the activities you love.

MAKOplasty® is an innovative technology that enables specially trained orthopaedic surgeons to conduct partial or total knee or total hip replacement by using three-dimensional computer imaging and a robotic arm. This procedure can relieve pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis and restore range of motion.

Dr. Robert Belniak is one of Connecticut’s leaders in utilizing MAKOplasty for partial knee replacement. Dr. Belniak is also one of six doctors in the state who is trained and certified to use MAKO technology for total knee replacements.

MAKOplasty has revolutionized knee repair by providing surgeons with the accuracy to pinpoint the exact damaged area and implant an artificial device that is in perfect alignment with the rest of the knee. This improves how long the implant will last and how quickly you can resume activities. 

 

How MAKOplasty Works

Dr. Robert Belniak has performed dozens of knee repairs using this advanced technology.
