  • Hip Fractures
  • Total Hip Replacements
  • Partial Hip Replacements
  • Revision Hip Replacement
  • Patient-Matched Hip Implants

Benefits of Robotic Hip Replacement

  • Accelerate recovery time and reduce pain due to the minimal trauma to muscles, tendons and nerves
  • Reduce scarring from the use of a smaller incision
  • More rapid stability of the hip, because muscles are not disrupted during the procedure
  • Less radiation exposure as a CT Scan is not required

ROSA Hip Replacement Surgery

A solution for you & your unique anatomy

Hip replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can relieve your pain, increase motion, and help you get back to enjoying normal, everyday activities

Before surgery

Your preoperative experience will be like that of most total hip patients. But, unlike traditional hip replacement methods, with ROSA® Hip, a series of x-rays may be used to create a three-dimensional (3D) model of your hip anatomy. This 3D model will enable the surgeon to plan specifics of your hip replacement surgery completely customized to you prior to your surgery.

During surgery

The surgical procedure using ROSA® Hip is similar to traditional total hip replacement, but with a robotic assistant. Your surgeon has been specially trained to use ROSA® Hip in order to personalize the surgical approach for your unique anatomy. The robot does not operate on its own, it does not move unless your surgeon prompts it to. This helps ensure that the plan your surgeon put into place is executed as intended. Throughout your surgery, ROSA® Hip provides your surgeon with data about your hip which helps your surgeon know how to position your implant based on your unique anatomy.

After surgery

Following surgery, you will be hospitalized based upon the recovery plan your surgeon decides is best for you. Recovery time varies, but most people should be able to drive after two weeks. Your surgeon will tell you when and what activities you can return to, and what activities to avoid.

Total Hip Replacements and Arthritis

The hip is one of the body's largest joints, and is also a ball-and-socket joint. A ball-and-socket joint is when the rounded surface of a bone moves within a depression of another bone, allowing greater freedom of movement than any other kind of joint. The bone surfaces of the ball and socket are covered with smooth tissue that enables them to move easily. When the bones do not move easily, this is what causes pain and potentially arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type and is the leading cause of hip pain. Osteoarthritis is when the cartilage around the hip gets worn away, resulting in bone-on-bone grinding.
