Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for Total Hip Arthroplasty

RWJBarnabas Health offers Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for Total Hip Arthroplasty as an alternative to traditional total hip replacement surgeries. This procedure is designed for those suffering with inflammatory or non-inflammatory degenerative hip joint disease (DJD).

Using real-time information and images of your hip, your joint replacement surgeon knows and controls accurate implant placement, which can be difficult to achieve with traditional total hip replacement techniques without a robotic arm.

Benefits Over Traditional Total Hip Replacement

  • Improved accuracy in placement of the hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system.
    • This can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation.
  • More precise consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift.
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together.
    • This may improve the lifetime of the implant.

Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery total hip arthroplasty is designed to achieve a new level of precision using the latest techniques in total hip replacement and is designed to restore mobility and an active lifestyle.

Becoming a Candidate

These state-of-the-art treatments are an alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery. These are performed by RWJBarnabas Health's specialty trained, Mako-certified orthopedic surgeons.

If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery total hip arthroplasty, a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip will be scheduled one to two weeks prior to your surgery date. This is used to create your unique surgical plan for optimal implant placement.

As a total hip arthroplasty procedure, it is typically covered by insurance.
