Mako is robotic arm assisted surgery. It is supposed to result in fewer complications, faster recovery, better fit, and less pain.Gracie, PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma, they extract blood, spin it, and re-inject the plasma. Supposed to help with healing. My surgery is in a month. JK, I'm sure you would have known if it had been Mako, they make you first do a C-scan of your knee to produce a 3D model, and the robot bases its calculations on that. If the surgeon is as much as 2 mill. off, the robotic arm will not let him or her cut. Would love to hear from anyone who has gone through it. If you could post something about the person you know who had Mako surgery and how the recovery went, that would be great. Thanks for responding!
