Advanced control, increased precision
Hip replacement surgery involves removing a damaged hip joint and replacing it with an implant.
The Mako® system aids our surgeons during the planning process as well as the procedure itself, allowing for more precise hip replacement operations.
The robotic technology works in tandem with our surgeons and is designed to increase the precision of the procedure to improve outcomes for you.
1. Personalised surgical plan
A CT scan will be taken of your hip prior to surgery, which the Mako® system will change into a 3D virtual model of your joint.
The surgeon uses this to design a highly personalised surgery plan.
2. Continued assessment
Mako® provides your surgeon with real-time data throughout the procedure so that they can constantly assess your hip and adjust the plan if needed.
3. Accurate bone removal
The surgeon guides the robotic arm to remove damaged bone and cartilage during the surgery.
The Mako® technology creates a virtual boundary to protect healthy bone and cartilage by constantly referencing the surgical plan.
4. Precise implant placement
The implant is then placed into the hip and carefully guided to the best location.
