Has anyone had or getting their replacement with the Mako robotic arm assist?

Try searching for the term in the blue strip of menus items in upper right corner of the screen. You’ll find folks who know about it, I think.

Greetings and welcome Sammy! I did not have the MAKO arm assist, but my RTKR was done with surgeon using the ROSA robotic assist arm used with Zimmer implants https://www.zimmerbiomet.com/medical-professionals/knee/product/rosa-knee.html

The main thing I notice this side of it was that I had two bandages: the standard incision wound and a very short 'mount' wound above that where the ROSA robotic sensor doo-dad (smile) was placed, I understand. I will be seeing my doc soon to ask details.
