Revolutionizing Recovery: Same-Day Hip Replacement with Robotics

Experience the hip replacement revolution with robotics, allowing you to head home within a day of the procedure! Same-day hip replacement, powered by cutting-edge robotics, offers a personalized and patient-centric approach.

What is same day hip replacement?

Same-day hip replacement, also known as outpatient or ambulatory hip replacement, is a surgical procedure where a patient undergoes hip replacement surgery and is discharged on the same day or next day. In a same-day hip replacement, the patient typically arrives at the surgical facility on the day of the procedure, undergoes surgery, and then, after a period of recovery, is discharged to return home on the same or next day.

This approach aims to minimize the length of hospitalization, reduce costs, and expedite the recovery process. Not all patients are candidates for same-day hip replacement, and eligibility depends on factors such as overall health, the complexity of the surgery, and the availability of adequate support at home for postoperative care.

What is robotic assisted hip replacement surgery?

Robotic-assisted hip replacement surgery uses advanced technology to enhance precision in various stages of the joint replacement procedure. Preoperative planning involves creating a three-dimensional model of the patient's hip joint using imaging techniques. During surgery, the robotic system provides real-time navigation assistance, allowing the surgeon to make precise adjustments, reshape bones, and customize the placement of the hip implant based on the patient's anatomy. This technology aims to optimize alignment and potentially improve the long-term success of the artificial hip components.

Revolutionizing Recovery:
Same Day Hip Replacement with Robotic Technology

Same-day hip replacement surgery used with robotic arm technology has its benefits. The precision of the robotic system provides real-time navigation to aid in preoperative planning, contributing to optimal implant placement and alignment. The minimally invasive nature of this approach, facilitated by smaller incisions, may result in reduced tissue damage, less postoperative pain, and potentially faster recovery. The customization afforded by three-dimensional modeling of the patient's hip joint enhances the fit of the implant, potentially improving joint stability and reducing complications.1

Don’t just take it from us. Recent studies by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons boost remarkable patient satisfaction rates after outpatient total hip replacement, with 100% of outpatient hip replacement recipients saying that they would do it again.2

Studies on robotic assisted hip replacement using the Mako Total Hip show improved outcomes, including reduced pain and quicker recovery times when compared to manual surgery. Clinical studies reveal the advantages of Mako Total Hip, showcasing more precise implant placement, alignment, and replication of a natural hip feel based on the surgical plan. Additionally, this technology lowers the risk of hip dislocation, minimizes blood loss, and promotes the preservation of healthy bone.3
