Mako (Robotic Assisted) Posterior Approach Total Hip Replacement
MAKO Robotic Assisted Posterior Approach Total Hip Replacement is a surgical technique that utilizes a robotic arm to assist the orthopedic surgeon in performing precise hip replacements. This surgery involves a posterior approach where an incision is made on the side of the buttocks to access the hip joint. The primary leg muscles used for walking are preserved through this approach. This is followed by the insertion of an implant into the joint, usually without the use of bone cement thereby allowing firm and long-lasting fit. This surgery has fewer incidents of complications and provides long term results with the hip replacement.
