My TKR from 2018 is perfect, and I see that Dr. Patel has since made his practice more thorough and efficient. Some knee surgeons think that no robot could be as good as they are, but Dr Patel uses the Mako robot to support his skills as a surgeon and thereby give the patient a better chance for an excellent outcome.
