For patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease of the hip who no longer respond to non-surgical treatment options, total hip arthroplasty (THA) is often recommended. Yet, despite its safety and long-term outcomes, 90% of total hip arthroplasty patients decline surgery.1
Conventional total hip arthroplasty relies on instrumentation and alignment guides or visual assessment for bone preparation and implant alignment. Poorly placed or misaligned implants can lead to impingement, wear, and dislocation.2
The use of highly advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm technology eliminates much of the guesswork of manual total hip arthroplasty, consistently and reproducibly resulting in increased accuracy. This maximizes the opportunity for improved surgical results and patient satisfaction, and may increase the lifespan of the hip implant.
