Mako Total Hip Replacement in Fort Mill, SC

At SpecOrtho we understand that knowing what to expect from your joint replacement experience is important to you. As you are reading through this material, please reach out to us to discuss if you have additional questions.

Each patient is unique and can experience joint pain for different reasons. It’s important to talk to us about the reason for your hip pain so you can understand the treatment options available to you. Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body. It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their hip pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako Total Hip replacement, which may provide you with relief from your hip pain.

Mako can help your surgeon plan for better outcomes, like less pain and shorter recovery times, compared to manual hip replacement surgery.

If you’re in need of hip replacement, Mako Total Hip replacement surgery may be right for you. To schedule a consultation with a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon in Fort Mill, contact SpecOrtho today. Give us a call at (803) 548-6464 or request an appointment through our secure online form.

How Mako Workship on computer screen.

Mako is an innovative solution for many suffering from painful arthritis of the hip.

Scan. It all starts with a CT scan so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy.

Plan. The CT scan is used to create a 3D CT-based model of your hip. Your surgeon uses this 3D model to create a personalized surgical plan and assist your surgeon in performing your hip replacement procedure.

Mako Can. In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides Mako’s robotic arm within the predefined area, and Mako’s AccuStopTM technology helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized preoperative plan was created.

It’s important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, who guides Mako’s robotic arm during the surgery to position the implant in the knee and hip joints. Mako does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own or move without the surgeon guiding it. Mako also allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed.

Mako for Total Hip replacement is a surgical procedure intended for patients who suffer from noninflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease (DJD). Some forms of DJD include osteoarthritis (OA), post-traumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), avascular necrosis (AVN) and hip dysplasia.
