Greater Surgical Accuracy to Help You Recover Faster and Get Back to Living Your Life

The MakoTM Robotic-Arm generates a pre-surgical 3-D bone model that Joint Solutions surgeons at Montefiore New Rochelle use to create surgical plans that are honed precisely for each patient. This results in soft tissue protection to the ligaments around the knee,1 leading to less pain and faster recovery.

Renowned Surgeons Doing More with Cutting-Edge Technology

Under the leadership of Dr. Steven Zelicof, Chief, Orthopedic Surgery, the Joint Solutions team is dedicated to investing in the latest technology to continue to offer the highest standard of care for all patients.
