MAKOplasty® is an Innovative Alternative to Total Hip Replacement
Arrowhead Hospital is the only hospital in Arizona to offer the Total Hip Arthroplasty procedure using a highly advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm system. This new level of reproducible surgical precision in hip surgery provides relief for people suffering with either non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease.
- Relief from hip pain and stiffness
- Accurate placement of the hip implant can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
- More consistency in leg length
- Potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
- Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together – this may improve the life of the implant
