KIMS Hospital is the first hospital in Kent to be offering Mako SmartRobotics™ for joint surgery.
Using Mako's robotic-arm assisted technology together with 3D virtual modelling, your surgeon is able to perform a more precise joint replacement surgery which can result in less pain and faster recovery times*.
If you’re experiencing pain caused by arthritis or trauma of the knee, and you require a total knee replacement, you may be a good fit for Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted knee replacement surgery.
The first step is to book a consultation with an Orthopaedic Consultant to discuss your condition and see if a robotic-arm assisted procedure is right for you. You can choose to have your consultation, diagnostics and follow up appointments at KIMS Hospital or Sevenoaks Medical Centre. If you need surgery, this will be carried out at KIMS Hospital in Maidstone.
3D virtual modelling is used to create a completely personalised surgical plan for each patient. Using Mako's robotic-arm assisted technology together with 3D virtual modelling, your surgeon is able to perform a more precise knee replacement surgery resulting in less pain and faster recovery times*.
