Watch orthopedic surgeon David Padden, MD, perform a MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement. MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA), is a procedure known as total hip replacement that is supported by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System. It is indicated for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, allows surgeons to achieve a new level of precision with the newest techniques in hip replacement surgery.
This technology offers the potential for a higher level of patient–specific implant alignment and positioning to accurately reproduce the surgical plan, an aspect not consistently achieved in manual techniques.
Accurate alignment and positioning of hip implants are important factors affecting surgical outcomes and the lifespan of implants.
The robotic arm technology enables a new level of accuracy in implant alignment and positioning – that may mean restored mobility and a return to your active lifestyle.
