St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron is celebrating two years of offering advanced MAKOplasty® robotic orthopedic surgery. St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron was the first hospital in southeastern Michigan to offer MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing, and the first hospital in Michigan to offer MAKOplasty® total hip replacement. Since the hospital unveiled the new technology in July 2010, hundreds of patients have benefited from the advanced surgery which provides for a shorter length of stay, increased mobility and a long-term alternative to a total knee surgical procedure. Due to the overwhelming success of the partial knee resurfacing program, SJMPH introduced MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty in January 2012. Patients who have undergone the procedure show incredible results and potentially reduced recovery time from its traditional counterpart.
