Technology Improves Surgical Accuracy: Dr. Borus Featured in The Columbian

At Rebound, we are proud to offer premiere joint replacement technology to the Portland and southwest Washington area. Whether you are a replacing a hip, knee, shoulder or other joint, you’ll be well cared for every step of the way at our Total Joint Center.

Through our partnerships with Legacy Salmon Creek and PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, we provide the pinnacle of treatment, recovery planning and state-of-the-art care. Our surgeons use the latest advancements in hip and knee replacement procedures, and Rebound was the first orthopedic practice in the region to perform MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing, an alternative to total joint replacement that utilizes robotics technology.

Recently, The Columbian reported on our MAKOplasty treatment offerings and Rebound orthopedic surgeon Dr. Todd Borus in an article emphasizing how technology improves surgical accuracy:

Legacy Salmon Creek is the only Southwest Washington hospital offering MAKO surgeries. And Borus is far and away the local leader in the procedures, performing 791 of the hospital’s 1,000 procedures. He has performed 581 partial-knee replacements and 210 hip replacements using the robotic technology.

Word spread soon after the hospital began offering the procedure, Borus said. He’s had patients from as far away as Alaska, Colorado and Hawaii, and still regularly sees people from Eastern Oregon and the coast, he said.

Next year, Rebound and Legacy Salmon Creek hope to begin offering MAKOplasty full-knee replacement, which was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Borus said.
