Is Robotic Arm Assisted Total Hip Arthroplasty More Bone Preserving than Conventional Hip Replacements and Hip Resurfacing? 

Scientific Research Publishing – Open Journal of Orthopaedics
2022, 12, 259-267.

Overview:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the single ream, robotic arm-assisted (RAA) Total Hip Replacement can preserve a greater volume of bone stock compared to conventional hip replacement and resurfacing.

Outcome:

RAA Total Hip Replacement leads to significant preservation of the acetabulum compared to conventional techniques. This outcome is a reflection of the increased precision of the planning and execution of the RAA acetabular reaming process.

This is a significant finding, especially considering the increasing number of younger patients receiving hip replacements, as they are more likely to require revision surgery.

Congratulations to Fremantle Hospital and Minister for Health, Roger Cook and Omar Khorshid AMA Federal President, for adopting “Mako” robotic technology for hip and knee replacement surgery.

Joondalup Health Campus in Perth have been using the “Mako” robotic technology for hip and knee replacement surgery for over 6 years.

Dr Arash Taheri said “It’s great to see this dynamic technology being embraced in Western Australia, bringing it to not just our northern public patients but now to the southern public patients also! The accuracy, efficiency and consistency with ‘mako technology’ has huge benefits for our patients and their recovery.”

Dr Taheri has performed over 1600 surgeries using the ‘Mako’ robotic technology and is excited to see this advancement in surgery available to more people every year.
