When Robotic Hip Replacement May Be Necessary

Robotic hip replacement surgery may be recommended for patients with severe joint damage or those experiencing chronic pain and stiffness in their hip joint. This damage may be due to a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, and hip fractures. Patients who have not found relief through non-surgical treatments such as medication or physical therapy may also benefit from robotic hip replacement surgery.

The Surgical Procedure

During robotic hip replacement, the patient is placed under anesthesia, and the surgeon employs robotic assistance. The robotic system creates a virtual hip joint model, working alongside advanced imaging and aiding in precise surgical planning. Small incisions are made to remove damaged tissue, with the robotic arm guiding implant placement. Continuous monitoring adjusts for anatomical changes, ensuring accuracy. After securing the implant, the incisions are closed, and the patient enters recovery.

Post-surgical Care and Recovery

After robotic hip replacement surgery, patients undergo a comprehensive rehabilitation program to restore strength, mobility, and function to the hip joint. This typically includes physical therapy exercises, gait training, and pain management techniques to facilitate a smooth recovery.

Patients are encouraged to gradually increase activity levels under the guidance of their healthcare provider, with a focus on avoiding high-impact activities that may put stress on the new hip joint. Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor progress, assess healing, and address any concerns or complications that may arise.
