Dr. Narayan Hulse explains all about hip osteoarthritis and hip replacement surgery in this article

  1. The most common type of arthritis affecting the hip is osteoarthritis, simple wear and tear on the joint over time, and it is most common in people over 60
  2. The joints that become affected, how badly they are affected, and when they become affected vary from person to person

> Unfortunately, once arthritis advances, it is extremely hard to control

In this article, Dr. Hulse speaks about the surgical management of hip osteoarthritis.

  1. Total hip replacement, is the removal of the damaged parts of the hip joint and socket and replacement with artificial implants made of metal, ceramic, or very hard plastic. This artificial joint (prosthesis) aids in the reduction of pain and improvement of function. This surgery may be an option if hip pain interferes with daily activities and other treatments are not effective.
  2. Partial hip replacement, also known as hemiarthroplasty, involves replacing only one side of the hip joint, the femoral head, rather than both sides, as in total hip replacement. This procedure is mostly performed on elderly patients for hip fractures.

How Mako Technology works

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a CT scan of the diseased knee joint is taken. This CT scan is uploaded into the Mako System software, where a 3D model of your knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your partial knee replacement.

In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides the robotic-arm within the pre-defined area and the Mako System. The surgeon guides the robotic-arm within the pre-defined area and the Mako System helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized pre-operative plan was created. This helps to provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

It’s important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, who guides the robotic-arm during the surgery to position the implant in the knee joint. The Mako Robotic-Arm does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own, or move without the surgeon guiding the robotic-arm. The Mako System also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.
