What is hip replacement?
The hip Makoplasty uses a computerized system which, taking advantage of TAC images realized by patients during last months before the operation, develops a three-dimensional hip model to operate that can be useful for surgeon to choose, before the operation, the size and placement of hip prosthesis implant.
In operating phase, through sensors positioned on articulation, the surgeon provides robot computer other parameters causing the definitive model, added to the preoperative study.
The surgeon carries out the resection of collum femoris, applies the proof femoral prosthetic component and sets up the acetabular cup compartment through a cutter assembled on a mechanical arm, directly under the computer control.
After verification of proof implant correct working (limb length, component stability, muscle tension, etcetera) the definitive prosthesis will be implanted.
