Learn about MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement

Innovative alternative to traditional total hip replacement

What is MAKOplasty® Total Hip Replacement?

MAKOplasty® is an innovative, robotic-arm assisted procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration.  It can offer the following benefits over traditional total hip replacement:

  • Accurate placement of the hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system. This 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 lifetime of the implant.

This state-of-the-art treatment alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery is performed by Steward’s specially trained, MAKOplasty®-certified orthopedic surgeons.
