MAKOplasty total hip arthroplasty (THA), performed at Florida Hospital Orlando by Dr. J. Dean Cole and Dr. Brian Vickaryous, is an innovative, leading-edge treatment for patients suffering from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. Like the MAKOplasty partial hip restructuring procedure, the THA is powered by the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which affords our skilled surgeons a new level of accuracy and precision. In this procedure, the MAKOplasty enables the accurate placement and alignment of implant components, using the patient’s CT scan data to reconstruct the anatomy and create a patient-specific surgical plan.
During surgery, the patient’s hip joint is registered and matched to the surgical plan, providing surgeons with dynamic, real-time information. Robotic arm guidance, three-dimensional visual feedback and real-time data assist surgeons in more accurately positioning the implants, improving outcomes and decreasing the chances of mechanical failure.
