The robot has dramatically improved the surgeon's ability to accurately and consistently place the prosthetic components in the correct orientation. This allows the surgeon to execute his/her plan precisely.
The anterior approach has dramatically improved total hip replacement by improving recovery time, eliminating muscle damage, preserving the posterior capsule, and drastically reducing dislocation.
We have now entered into a new realm, where the combination of the robot and the anterior approach will exponentially improve the accuracy and recovery for today's total hip replacement patients. This website is dedicated to advancing patient education on robotic anterior hip replacement surgery.
