Mako Total Hip Procedure

Total Hip Procedure Through Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology

Mako Total Hip is a procedure known as total hip replacement that is supported by robotic-arm assisted technology. This innovative solution was designed for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. The robot enables surgeons to achieve a new level of precision using the latest techniques in total hip replacement and is designed to restore patient mobility and active lifestyle.

Robotic-arm assisted technology provides your surgeon a patient-specific 3-D model to pre-plan your hip replacement. During the procedure, tactile, visual, auditory feedback, and real-time data assists your surgeon in preparing the hip joint and placing the implants in the desired orientation with more accuracy.

If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, he or she will schedule a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip one or two weeks prior to your surgery date. This is used to create your unique surgical plan for optimal implant placement.
