I just wanted to carry on doing what I was doing. Now I’m able to do it better than I did before. I’ve got better mobilisation, I’m in less pain and I'm sleeping better. I’m just going onwards and upwards.

An advancement in hip replacement surgery

The Mako® system is an advancement in the way orthopaedic surgeons perform total hip replacements.

The technology comprises a surgical planning and navigation system combined with a robotic arm that is guided by our skilled surgeons.

Surgeons use Mako® software to create a bespoke plan based on your individual anatomy.

During the procedure, this detailed plan is used to ensure accurate removal of damaged bone and cartilage as well as precise positioning of the implant.

This improved accuracy can mean a shorter stay in hospital,3 improved feel and function,2 and less chance of problems in the future.4
