If you are suffering with degenerative hip disease (DJD), Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery may be a good alternative to traditional total hip replacement surgery. During Mako assisted surgery, your orthopedic surgeon will use a robotic-arm assisted procedure that includes real-time information and images of your hip, allowing for more precise placement of the hip implant.
Mako Total Hip is designed to give you a new level of precision using the latest techniques in total hip replacement. It helps restore mobility and an active lifestyle. Other benefits include:
If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for Mako Total Hip, she or he will schedule a computed tomography (CT) scan one to two weeks prior to your surgery. Your surgeon will use this scan to create a personalized surgical plan for optimal implant placement.
Your physician will also discuss the specific risks associated with Mako and other treatment options with you. In addition, you will receive pre-operative and post-operative instructions.
As a total hip arthroplasty procedure, Mako is typically covered by Medicare and most other insurance plans. Check with your health insurer.
