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.
