The Hip New Hip Replacement Surgery

MAKOplasty® total hip arthroplasty is designed to achieve a new level of precision using the latest techniques in total hip replacement, and is designed to restore mobility and an active lifestyle. It’s a robotic arm-assisted procedure designed for those suffering with inflammatory or non-inflammatory degenerative hip joint disease (DJD). DJD can cause a loss of cartilage, resulting in bone-on-bone contact that may result in hip pressure, pain, swelling and stiffness.

Using real-time information and images of your hip, your surgeon knows and controls accurate implant placement, which can be difficult to achieve with traditional total hip replacement techniques without a robotic arm.

MAKO Total Hip Arthroplasty Benefits May Include:

  • Accurate placement of your hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
  • More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together – this may improve the lifetime of the implant
