MAKO Robotic Surgery Technology
Hip problems don’t have to hold you back. Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis is the first in Memphis to offer the MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty technology. MAKOplasty is a minimally invasive hip resurfacing surgery technique for adults with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. MAKOplasty is performed using RIO®, a highly advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm system. This system enables the surgeon to create a customized surgery plan that includes optimized implant positioning using a CT scan of the patient’s hip. During the surgery, the surgeon uses feedback from the robotic arm to make real-time adjustments for a more accurate and successful surgery.
Compared to traditional hip replacement surgery, MAKOplasty potentially offers:
- Reduced pain
- Minimal hospitalization
- More rapid recovery
- Less implant wear and loosening
- Smaller scar
- Better motion and a more natural feeling hip
