Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare, a rehabilitation hospital located in Pomona, Calif, announces it is now offering Mako partial knee replacement surgery.
The minimally invasive procedure, for adults living with knee osteoarthritis that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee, is performed by a surgeon-controlled robotic arm system.
Casa Colina is one of the first in the region to acquire this technology, according to a media release.
“Mako allows us to treat patients with knee osteoarthritis at earlier stages and with greater precision, both in preoperative planning and in surgery,” says Luis Corrales, MD, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and director of the Casa Colina Joint Replacement Program, in the release.
“Because it is less invasive and preserves more of the patient’s natural knee, the goal is for patients to have relief from their pain, gain back their knee motion, and return to their daily activities,” he adds.
