UPMC Pinnacle Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
An estimated 12 percent of the U.S. population (nearly 21 million Americans) age 25 and older have osteoarthritis. Knee pain can be debilitating and persistent, causing decreased mobility, reduced quality of life over time, and work limitations.
When knee pain caused by osteoarthritis prohibits you from enjoying everyday activities, it may be time to seek treatment, which can include a partial or total replacement of the knee using a technology called Mako robotic arm-assisted surgery.
Dr. Thomas Ring, orthopedic surgeon joins us to talk about knee and joint pain and Osteoarthritis and how you don't have to suffer. He will explain how this new technology, Mako, has helped him & his colleagues as surgeons and what it means for the patient.
