Orthopedic Surgery department is pleased to introduce the MAKOplasty Robot. This new equipment is designed to perform a “MAKOplasty,” which is a partial knee resurfacing procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA).

has exclusive rights to this robot and the procedure in Plymouth, and the surrounding areas, including Barnstable and Plymouth counties.
