Mako robotic-arm assisted technology with the Triathlon Total Knee implant is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are performed. Mako technology allows surgeons to provide a personalized surgical experience based on each patient's specific diagnosis and unique anatomy.
It is important to understand the meaning of robotic-arm assisted surgery. Before surgery, the orthopaedic surgeon uses the Mako system software to plan the procedure. During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage according to the surgical plan. Then the surgeon inserts the Triathlon Total Knee implant.

A sleep study is a clinical test used by physicians to identify conditions that may be preventing you from receiving a good night’s rest. During your sleep study, a technician will carefully monitor and record sleep patterns. Your study will be evaluated by a physician specializing in Sleep Medicine. A report will be sent to your family doctor outlining recommended treatment.
