MAKO Surgical Corp. has introduced the commercial availability of the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System for use in total hip replacement procedures, called MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty.
MAKO’s total hip replacement application is designed to support the surgeon’s ability to more accurately align and position the implants relative to the needs of a patient. This may reduce potential complications associated with conventional hip replacement surgery. MAKOplasty Total Hip Arthroplasty provides a surgeon with a pre-operative 3-D reconstruction of the patient’s hip and is used to develop the patient-specific surgical plan. The robotic-arm then assists the surgeon during the procedure to accurately prepare the joint and optimally place hip implants.
