Osteoarthritis is one of the most common joint disorders. Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that occurs when the cartilage in your joints wears away.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says that more than 15 million Americans currently suffer from osteoarthritis. Typically, osteoarthritis worsens over time and there is no cure.

Now, physicians at Northern Nevada Medical Center can treat early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee with an innovative minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure called MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing. Northern Nevada Medical Center is the only hospital in Nevada to offer this new minimally invasive surgical procedure.
