Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder in the elderly. Unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA) have been increasing in prevalence at a rate of 30% each year. Robotic-arm-assisted UKAs increases the accuracy of implant positioning compared to traditional techniques which helps with a quicker recovery. Little literature on UKAs, but total knee arthroplasty (TKA) interventions should focus on knee range of motion (ROM), strengthening, gait training, icing, and a home exercise program (HEP). There are good outcomes for return to golf post TKA, but no information about UKAs. The purpose of this case report was to look at the impact of physical therapy (PT) on patient (pt) outcomes and return to golf following a Mako robotic-arm-assisted UKA.
