Symptoms of degenerative joint disease of the hip include: 

  • Pain with common activities, like standing, walking short distances, climbing up or down stairs, or getting in and out of chairs
  • Pain that is often worse after exercise and when placing weight or pressure on the joint
  • Start up pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position
  • Joint stiffness after getting out of bed
  • Pain, swelling or tenderness in the hip joint
  • A grating or crunching sensation in the hip during use

MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement Surgery

During the procedure, the femur and the acetabulum are registered into the RIO® computer software. Information is then collected and passed to the RIO® System via a high-definition camera to match the patient’s pre-operative CT scan to the patient’s actual bony anatomy. This connected the patient’s physical anatomy with the virtual bony anatomy allowing the RIO® System to provide accurate numbers to the surgeon on implant position and leg length.

Hospital stays average around three days, and in many cases following surgery, our patients are permitted to walk the same day.

MAKOplasty offers a number of advantages over traditional hip replacement procedures, such as:

  • Accurate placement of your hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
  • More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe fit
  • Decreased risk of the implant/implant and bone/implant impingement (abnormally rubbing together) – may improve the lifetime of the hip replacement

As a total hip arthroplasty procedure, MAKOplasty is typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
