What Patients Say: Whiteside Biomechanics Symmetric
Patient I. P.: Whiteside Biomechanics Symmetric Left knee in 1990 at age 68, right knee in 2006 at age 86.
My knees were very sore due to osteoarthritis and were swollen and this made walking uncomfortable. Now, I have no problems and do not need a cane, walker or any other aid.
I enjoy exercise at Harbor Health Care in the warm water pool and walk OK. I am 87 years of age and enjoy life.
Patient L. A.: Whiteside Biomechanics Symmetric right knee in 2001 at age 41, Journey Deuce left knee in 2008 at age 48.
Both knees hurt all the time and I could not sleep at night. It was tough just to walk. I would not take a lot of pain killers just to keep going. I really did not have any limitations because I farm and the work has to get done. Once I had the first knee fixed I felt so much better. The pain was gone and I could sleep again. I waited with the left knee because Dr. Bartlett said there is always something new coming. Well, nothing really did come so I had the left knee done. I NEVER regret doing either one. I have aches once in a while, but I can do my work just as good as before. I am very pleased with the outcome.
Robotic Knee Surgery
Dr. Bartlett was the first in Madison, WI to perform MAKOplasty®.
MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to midstage osteoarthritis (OA) in either the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or lateral (outer) compartments of the knee.
It is powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing.
