If you have severe hip degeneration and your pain can no longer be controlled by medication, you may be a candidate for Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System Total Hip Replacement.
WHAT IS A MAKO ROBOTIC-ARM ASSISTED SURGERY TOTAL JOINT HIP REPLACEMENT?
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery total joint replacement uses the Stryker robotic arm, which allows your surgeon to achieve a new level of accuracy. Before surgery, the RIO® system’s software creates a 3-D model of your hip based on a CT scan. Your surgeon will then place your implant based on your unique anatomy.
Benefits of this procedure include better outcomes and fewer complications. There is also a reduced risk of leg length discrepancy.
HOW DOES MAKO ROBOTIC-ARM ASSISTED SURGERY SYSTEM HIP REPLACEMENT WORK?
If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery 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 implants optimally. Real-time information and images allow your surgeon to know and control accurate implant placement.
