Total hip replacement surgery involves removing the damaged parts of the hip joint and substituting them with a prosthetic component. This procedure aims to alleviate pain and improve mobility in patients with severe hip joint issues.

Who Needs Total Hip Replacement Surgery?

  • Individuals with significant osteoarthritis in the hip, causing extreme pain or deformity that impacts their daily life.
  • Patients who haven't seen improvement through non-surgical treatments like weight loss, medication, or physiotherapy.

Introducing MAKOplasty® in Joint Replacement

MAKOplasty® employs a robotic arm to enhance joint replacement surgeries, including partial knee replacements and total hip replacements.

MAKOplasty® for Enhancing Total Hip Replacement

In traditional hip replacement surgeries, risks include dislocation of the new hip, leg length discrepancies, and a shorter lifespan for the artificial hip, potentially leading to further surgeries. MAKOplasty® mitigates these risks through its advanced components:

  • A precise robotic arm
  • A three-dimensional imaging system
  • A computer coordinates all functions for optimal accuracy

This innovative approach enables surgeons to plan meticulously and execute with greater precision, minimising errors during the procedure.

Benefits of Total Hip Replacement with MAKOplasty®

  • Enhanced accuracy in positioning the artificial hip reduces complications like dislocation and potentially extends its lifespan.
  • Rapid recovery: Most patients (90%) start walking with support within 24 hours post-surgery.
  • Minimal surgical impact: The procedure involves a small incision, limited blood loss, and quick recovery, with patients typically spending just three days in the hospital.
