Optim Surgery Center is the first in the Savannah area to offer Mako robotic-arm assisted joint replacement procedures. This advanced technology allows our surgeons to perform partial knee and total hip replacement surgeries that are safer, more precise, and personally customized just for you with one specific goal in mind:
To get you, back to you!
"Mako gives me the ability to precisely restore alignment & ligament balancing. Patients have less pain, less swelling, and faster recovery."
It all starts with a CT scan that creates a 3D image of the patient’s unique anatomy. This information we’ve never had before allows us to create the patient’s perfect plan and assess and balance the joint.
Using everything the CT scan helps us to know about the patient, Mako AccuStop haptic technology guides us to cut what’s planned precisely for each patient. For some patients, that means preserving soft tissue; for others, that means saving healthy bone.
“To this day, people who live in my Houston subdivision still knock on my door and ask: Are you the lady who had both hips and a knee done and then we saw you walking? What doctor do you go to?”
“They helped me get back to the things I love.”
“If you are limited in your day-to-day activities and it’s starting to affect you both mentally and physically, research your options. Technology has advanced so much over the years and I am so happy I got my knee replaced with Mako Technology.”
“When I talk to people that have knee problems I say, talk to your doctor about knee replacement. I am so happy with my Stryker knee. My surgeon took me through every step of the surgery, benefits and risks, what happens before, what happens after, and I just am so grateful to him, I will always be grateful.”
