Robotic Hip Surgery

Robotic and computer-assisted technology assists the surgeon to precisely prepare and
place the hip replacement components (ball, socket, stem).

•maximizes the stability of the hip (reduced dislocation rates),

•improves the wearing of the components (akin to having a well-aligned car tire),

• and facilitates correct leg-length.


A CT-scan is taken of the hip to create a detailed 3-D model.

The position of the components (ball, socket, stem) is idealized on the computer.

The surgeon then uses the robotic arm to precisely prepare and place the components.
