Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy

Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy

Knee surgery and arthroscopy is a surgical intervention method that aims to treat problems that occur in the knee area.
Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy

One of the most common orthopedically problematic areas is the knees. The reasons for this are; It joints with the two longest bones of our body, its range of motion is very high and the bone structures are shallow, its strength is provided only by soft tissues, and the knees are exposed to more load than other joints.

Knee surgery and arthroscopy is a surgical intervention method that aims to treat problems that occur in the knee area. Arthroscopy allows intra-articular structures to be examined and surgical interventions to be performed by inserting a small camera (arthroscope) into the knee joint. Knee surgery may include treatment of meniscus tears, ligament injuries, arthritis, and other knee problems.

What is MAKOplasty®?

Until now, MAKOplasty® was only available in the United States and at advanced medical centers in certain countries. Liv Hospital brings this method, which has changed the lives of many osteoarthritis (OA) patients, to Turkey. MAKOplasty® is a partial knee replacement procedure with the help of a robotic arm designed to relieve pain caused by joint degeneration due to OA. By identifying and targeting the part of the knee damaged by OA, the surgeon can regenerate the knee by preserving the healthy bones and ligaments around it.

MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing


In the partial knee reconstruction method, the surgeon renews only the arthritic part of the knee and healthy tissue and bones are preserved. It results in a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional total knee replacement surgery. Unlike other invasive methods, MAKOplasty® can generally be applied through small incisions on the hip and shin bone and 10-15 cm incisions on the knee. Thanks to the patient-specific implant placement method, it makes the knee feel natural. Since healthy bone is preserved, total knee replacement may still be possible later in life, if necessary.

What are the Advantages of MAKOplasty®?

  • It facilitates ideal positioning of the implant, making the knee feel more natural after surgery.
  • Recovery time is faster compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.
  • Hospital stay is shorter.
  • It accelerates recovery from pain and return to daily activities.
  • Who are the Suitable Candidates for MAKOplasty® Procedure?
  • Knee pain with movement on the inside or outside of the knee and/or under the kneecap.
  • Knee pain and stiffness when moving from a sitting position.
  • Curvature in the legs.
  • Failure to benefit from non-prosthetic treatments.
