Robotic Total Hip Replacement

If non-surgical treatments like physical therapy and medication don’t bring relief, your doctor may recommend hip replacement. Considered one of the most successful orthopaedic innovations of its time, hip replacements have been performed for more than 125 years.

Ask your surgeon if robotic total hip replacement is the right fit for you.

What Happens During Surgery?

During total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty), a surgeon removes the arthritic ball end of the femur (top of thigh bone) and inserts a metal component (a stem) into the bone. The surgeon also replaces the hip socket with an acetabular cup lined with durable polyethylene plastic.

In clinical studies, total hip replacements using Mako SmartRobotics™ have resulted in more accurate placement and alignment of hip implants, less likelihood of dislocation, reduced blood loss, more preservation of healthy bone, and better replication of the feeling of a natural hip.
