Joint pain isn't new, but how we're treating it is. 

VOA Ambulatory Surgery Center is the first outpatient surgery center in the region to offer same-day,  muscle-sparing robotic-arm assisted hip and knee surgery with the cutting-edge Mako SmartRobotics system.

Robotic arm-assisted knee surgery may be a good option for you!

- Severe knee pain or stiffness resulting from noninflammatory degenerative joint diseases like osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, avascular necrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis.

Clinical and laboratory studies have shown that: 

- Patients surveyed six months after surgery reported lower pain scores than those who received a conventional joint replacement. 

- Surgeons can execute their surgical plans more accurately. 

- Patients' soft tissue and ligaments were better protected from damage. 

- Patients reported better overall satisfaction than those who received a conventional joint replacement within six months after surgery.
