What is Robotic Hip Replacement

A robotic hip replacement is same as a conventional hip replacement. Your surgeon removes damaged tissue in your hip joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. The difference is that it's done with assistance from a robotic arm or handheld robotic device .

What is Robotic Hip Replacement ?

A hip replacement is a common type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one (known as an implant). Adults of any age can be considered for a hip replacement, although most are done on people between the ages of 60 and 80.

Mako Hip Replacements

If your orthopaedic surgeon recommends a Mako hip replacement procedure, the first step is to take pictures of your hip joint that will be used to plan your surgery. . These CT Scan images are so precise that your surgeon can determine the best approach pre operatively. The scans take into account your bone structure, the alignment of your hip joint, and surrounding tissues. This helps your surgeon plan every step of your surgery, including picking the best implant size, location and positioning. When it is time for your Mako hip replacement, your surgeon will use tracking pins along your knee and hip that help the robot "see" your anatomy. Then, the Mako arm will position itself according to those measurements, and your surgeon will use the robotic tool throughout the procedure. The surgery is not done by the robot. Instead, it acts as a guide, helping your surgeon follow the plan laid out in advance. This means more precise incisions, optimal positioning, and in many cases, a better and faster recovery. After your surgery, your surgeon and the rest of your care team will monitor your progress, help to relieve discomfort, and chart a course for your at-home recovery.

Why Does it Happen?

Hip replacement surgery is most commonly performed to address severe pain caused by osteoarthritis. Walking, , and getting in and out of chairs are all common challenges for those who need hip replacement surgery.

Recovery Rate

The Mako uses more precise incisions and helps achieve optimal joint alignment, which may lead to a better and faster recovery. After your surgery, your surgeon and the rest of your care team will monitor your progress, help to relieve discomfort, and chart a course for your at-home recovery.

Why Does it Happen?

Hip replacement surgery is usually necessary when the hip joint is worn or damaged so that your mobility is reduced and you are in pain even while resting. The most common reason for hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis. Other conditions that can cause hip joint damage include: rheumatoid arthritis.

When to consult a doctor ?

Consult your Orthopedician as soon as you experience :

  • Pain in hip joint
  • Difficulty in walking, climbing stairs
  • Difficulty in doing day to day activities like sitting crossleged and squating 
  • Pain or disability not responsive to conservative treatments
  • Age related degenerative Osteoarthritis(OA)
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  •  Rheumatoid arthritis(RA) (hronic, progressive autoimmune disease )
  • Avascular necrosis(AVS) (blood flow to the hip bone is interrupted or reduced)
  • Hip dysplasia (condition when the acetabulum (the socket in the pelvis into which the femoral head fits) is too shallow to support the femoral head (the ball-shaped bone at the top of the femur or thigh bone)
