The NCH Advantage • Technology

Putting the latest medical advances to work for you

Northwest Community Hospital is committed to offering the most comprehensive knee replacement, hip replacement and other orthopedic surgery services possible. We're also dedicated to caring for you using the latest surgical techniques and technologies, whether your surgery is performed at the main hospital or our Day Surgery Center.

In early 2012, NCH became one of only three hospitals in Illinois to offer MAKOplasty®, a minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure that uses robotic arm technology to deliver precise resurfacing of the arthritic portion of the knee. The procedure is so accurate that it provides optimal implant positioning and alignment, preserves healthy knee tissue and bone, and returns you back to daily activities within two to three weeks following surgery. If you have painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee, click here to learn how MAKO can help you.
