Robotic Hip Surgery



Robotic and computer-assisted technology assists the surgeon to precisely prepare and
place the hip replacement components (ball, socket, stem).

This:
•maximizes the stability of the hip (reduced dislocation rates),

•improves the wearing of the components (akin to having a well-aligned car tire),

• and facilitates correct leg-length.

Technique:

A CT-scan is taken of the hip to create a detailed 3-D model.

The position of the components (ball, socket, stem) is idealized on the computer.

The surgeon then uses the robotic arm to precisely prepare and place the components.
