The Hospitals of Providence has continued to invest in orthopedic services. Sierra Campus has performed El Paso’s first MAKOplasty™ Total Knee Replacement surgery, which uses a robotic arm-assisted technology that aims to improve clinical outcomes for knee surgery patients.

"MAKOplasty™ Total Knee Replacement allows us to treat patients with knee osteoarthritis with greater precision. This robot-assisted procedure allows the surgeon to precisely position the new knee joint. The goal is for patients to have relief from their pain, gain back their knee motion, and return to the activities they love to do,” said Monica Vargas-Mahar, CEO of The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus. 

Sierra Campus was the first hospital in El Paso to offer robotic MAKOplasty™ technology and is the only hospital with the new MAKOplasty™ technology to perform total knee replacement surgery.  MAKOplasty™ is also available for partial knee and hip replacement procedures. Our orthopedic services are designed to provide individualized care to all of our patients, and we provide a nurse navigator who guides patients through the surgical procedure.
