The Best Minds in Orthopaedic Hip Pain Treatment

For people suffering from painful degenerative hip joint disease that is controlled by medication, UChicago Medicine orthopaedic experts deliver advanced robotic arm-assisted technology treatment for a total hip replacement surgery. With this state-of-the-art robotic system, our orthopaedic surgeons can improve the accuracy of the hip implant placement, with a faster recovery and better results. The beneficial, innovative Mako total hip replacement provides:

  • Accurate hip implant placement, which reduces the likelihood of hip dislocation
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together, which may improve the life of the implant
  • Greater chance for consistency in leg length, which decreases the need for a shoe lift

During surgery, a robotic arm guides the surgeon in preparing the hip socket for positioning the hip implant. Real-time images and information from the robotic system assist the surgeon with accurate implant placement.
