Mako Technology Total Hip Replacement

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery total hip replacement is a treatment option for those living with degenerative joint disease (DJD), a condition that can limit an active lifestyle and negatively impact your quality of life. The innovative Mako technology allows your surgeon to create and precisely place a hip joint that is crafted for your unique, specific anatomy.

DJD affects millions of Americans and can be influenced by:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Inherited traits that affect the shape and stability of your joints
  • A previous hip injury
  • Repetitive strain on the hip
  • Improper joint alignment
  • Excessive overweight
  • Exercise- or sports-generated hip stress

If your pain and symptoms do not respond to first-line, non-surgical solutions, speak with your doctor about options for total hip replacement.

Mako Technology: Hip Surgery Tailored to Each Patient

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is an innovative, hip replacement solution for those suffering with painful DJD of the hip. Powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, your surgeon can treat your specific hip condition with anatomical accuracy and precision.

The Mako procedure starts with a CT scan of your hip 1-2 weeks before your surgery. The RIO software creates a 3-D model of your hip, pelvis and femur. The information creates a map that helps your surgeon replaced your ailing hip with a new hip that is designed specifically for your unique anatomy.

During surgery, the RIO software provides real-time information to help the surgeon place and align your implant in the ideal position, while a robotic arm prepares the bone socket and guides the precise placement of your implants.
