Only 3.5 days average stay in hospital for total knee replacement........compare that to MAKO.

My wife had bi-lateral knee replacements (both at the same time) a few years ago. The hospital stay was short, but that was followed by two weeks residence in a rehab facility, and a couple of months of outpatient physical therapy. Not everyone has coverage that lets them do that, but it would be interesting to know how that stage is different for Mako patients to get a complete comparison.
