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.
