The Pomona, Calif.-based Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare rehabilitation hospital now offers Mako partial knee replacement, a treatment option for adults with early stage knee osteoarthritis.

Here are five key notes:

 

1. Mako partial knee replacement is less invasive than traditional total knee surgery.

 

2. Mako advertises that, compared to total knee surgery, patients experience reduced pain, quicker recovery and minimal hospitalization following this partial knee replacement procedure.

 

3. Casa Colina is one of the first hospitals in its region to offer this surgery, which is performed with a surgeon-controlled robotic arm system.

 

4. This minimally invasive procedure is only offered to adults with early stage knee osteoarthritis, which has not yet reached three compartments of the knee.

 

5. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
