Utilizing a robotic-arm to assist in surgery results in greater overall accuracy and precision when compared to traditional surgery. This technique reduces the chances of common complications due various factors such unintended shaking of the surgeons hands. Due to the greater accuracy and control, the risk of misalignment, dislocation, and leg length discrepancy of the replacement hip joint is reduced.
Robotic-arm assisted total hip replacement surgery utilizes a 3D imaging camera and a machine that controls the whole operation while analyzing the results in real time. Pre-surgery, a computer x-ray is carried out on the patient to assist surgeons in making a detailed plan of action. During the surgery, the robotic-arm helps to position the artificial joint in place according to the predetermined plans to ensure a high level of precision.
