Orthopedic & Sports Institute is the first Northeastern Wisconsin facility to offer Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
Robotic Surgical Platform Provides Personalized Surgical Procedure
Appleton, WI: The Orthopedic & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley is the first orthopedic center in Northeastern Wisconsin to utilize the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery. This latest advancement in robotic technology changes the way these surgeries are performed.
Using CT scans and the Mako technology, surgeons create individualized 3-D reconstruction plans for each patient. After intensive planning, the robotic arm assists the surgeon, who performs the surgery, in replacing joints and balancing ligaments within the affected area, providing higher level of customization for implant alignment and positioning. The high accuracy of the computer navigation also decreases the risk of soft tissue damage during the procedure.
Mako technology has been in use since June 2006, when it was used in a partial knee replacement. It has since been utilized in over 83,000 knee and hip replacements, earning a respected reputation. It assists in both partial and total knee replacements and total hip replacements, bringing relief to those suffering from arthritis and moderate deformities.
OSI performs Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgeries at the main campus in Appleton. Post-surgery, patients can recover in OSI’s elite Recovery Inn. A facility like no other, with the feel of a top-rated hotel, Recovery Inn provides personalized care, including physical and occupational therapy, as its highly trained staff works with patients towards complete healing.
Consultation appointments are available to discuss if Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is the best option for patients. It is covered by many health insurance providers.
About Orthopedic & Sports Institute: OSI has been providing those in the Fox Valley area with streamlined orthopedic care since 2006. The main campus in Appleton has comprehensive surgical, non-surgical, and post-surgical orthopedic care necessities. Patients can see nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and surgeons all in one convenient location. Placing all the facilities in one location removes the complexity and added cost associated with orthopedics, letting the patient focus solely on recovery.
In 2010, OSI opened the country’s first orthopedics Recovery Inn. They expanded to Shawano and Waupaca in 2013, then added the Ripon clinic in 2015 and most recently a location in De Pere. The main campus opened the doors of an orthopedic walk-in clinic at the start of 2018.
