The Latest in Hip Replacement Procedures

If you have severe hip degeneration and your pain can no longer be controlled by medication, you may be a candidate for MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement.

What is a MAKOplasty total joint hip replacement?

MAKOplasty total joint replacement uses the RIO® 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 MAKOplasty® hip replacement work?

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 implants optimally. Real-time information and images allow your surgeon to know and control accurate implant placement.
