Robotic-Assisted Hip Replacement Technology
If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by joint arthritis or hip injury, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery might be right for you. Dr. Cory Calendine, Orthopaedic Surgeon, and the team at the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee offer state-of-the-art robotic surgery solutions for joint pain sufferers.
Mako Total Hip, Cory Calendine, MD
In clinical studies, Mako Robotic-assisted hip replacement resulted in:
- More accurate placement and alignment of hip implants based on the surgical plan.
- Less likelihood of hip dislocation.
- Reduced blood loss.
- Replication of the feeling of a natural hip.
- Preservation of healthy bone.
Mako Preoperative Planning Advantage
Personalized surgical plan with Mako SmartRobotics Hip Replacement: Prior to surgery, Dr. Calendine will order a CT scan of your hip joint in order to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. The 3D model allows Dr. Calendine to see things that typically can not be seen with an x-ray alone. This additional information helps your surgeon determine the optimal size, placement and positioning of your implant.
