Local area residents who require a partial knee replacement can now receive these services at Guthrie Corning Hospital. Guthrie is offering Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted surgery at the hospital, and has a team of five surgeons available.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA) and selectively replaces only the part of the knee damaged by OA. The knee is resurfaced while the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it are spared. This procedure results in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional knee replacement surgery.
The team of surgeons now offering Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted surgeries in Corning includes Dr. David Austin, Dr. Joel McClurg, Dr. Dermot Reynolds, Dr. Mason Stillwell and Dr. Daniel Tayag.
