MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement is a robotic, minimally invasive surgery. It can result in faster recoveries for our patients and less scarring.
The surgery is powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System.
If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for the MAKOplasty® procedure, a CT Scan will be taken of your hip one to two weeks prior to surgery. This is used to create a patient specific 3-D model. A surgical plan is then created for the placement and alignment of the implants before surgery.
During surgery, the robotic arm guides the surgeon in preparing the socket in the pelvis and positions the impants optimally. Real-time information and images allow your surgeon to know and control accurate implant placement, which can be difficult to achieve using traditional surgical techniques without a robotic arm.
If your symptoms aren't responding to non-surgical solutions, or your pain can no longer be controlled by medication, you may be a candidate for MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement.
A candidate for MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement may experience the following:
