Total Hip Replacement
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure intended for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease (DJD). Some forms of DJD include osteoarthritis (OA), post-traumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), avascular necrosis (AVN) and hip dysplasia.
Mako provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy for more accurate placement and alignment of your implant. A 3D model of your hip is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your total hip replacement. In the operating room, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm to position the implant while the Mako System helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries. The Mako System also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
It is important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopedic surgeon who guides the robotic-arm. The Mako Robotic-Arm does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own, or more without the surgeon guiding it.
