This approach could mean less pain for you after your procedure and an improved recovery time.
Ask your BMI Healthcare consultant about full or partial knee or hip replacement surgery using the Mako® surgical system.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
The implant is then placed into the hip and carefully guided to the best location.
There are various benefits to robotic-arm assisted hip replacements. These include:
Studies show that Mako® can help the surgeon place your implant more precisely.
Precision in implantation is a significant factor in the success of a hip replacement.1
This method could see you back in your own home faster than with conventional surgery.3
Mako® gives your surgeon greater control over the procedure and establishes boundaries to protect the healthy parts of your hip.5
Studies found that robotic-arm assisted hip replacement surgery leads to better functional outcomes. Patients have reported higher satisfaction and more natural-feeling hips.2
Using Mako® could reduce your risk of post-surgical complications including dislocation and misalignment.4
Our experienced orthopaedic consultants offer robotic-arm assisted knee and hip surgery.
