Hip Replacements

The largest ball-and-socket joint, the hip joint aids in fluid movement and is designed to withstand repeated motion as well as daily wear and tear. Despite its durable structure, the hip is not invincible and can be affected by degenerative diseases, arthritis, and traumatic injury. After all other treatment options have failed to give your hip relief from disability and discomfort, arthroplasty, or joint replacement, may be in order.

 

Onward Orthopedics offers different types of hip reconstruction options that can be personalized to your level of arthritis to be as minimally invasive as possible.

Hip Resurfacing

A less invasive hip replacement, hip resurfacing allows patients to keep their femoral head intact. The surgeon only removes and replaces the damaged bone and cartilage within the socket. Hip resurfacing is recommended for younger, larger-framed patients with strong, healthy bone.

 

Benefits of Hip Resurfacing:

  • May be easier to revise
  • Decreased risk of hip relocation
  • More normal walking pattern

Hip Resurfacing

A patient with advanced arthritis who has exhausted all non-surgical treatment options may be an ideal candidate for hip resurfacing. The surgeon only removes and replaces the damaged bone and cartilage within the socket. Hip resurfacing is recommended for younger, larger-framed patients with strong, healthy bone. Because it is less invasive than a full replacement, it offers physically active adults a quicker way to resume their active lifestyles.

  • Decreased risk of hip relocation
  • More normal walking pattern

Robotic or MAKO Replacement

It all begins with a CT Scan of your joint, which helps the system generate a 3D virtual model of your hip joint. The surgeon then loads this virtual model into the Mako System software to create your personalized pre-operative plan. In the operating room, your surgeon will use Mako to assist in performing your hip replacement based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako System allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed. During the procedure, your surgeon will prepare your bone based on the operative boundaries created by the Mako technology software. These boundaries help protect the essential anatomic structures of the knee and help minimize trauma to surrounding tissue. This also helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

 

Currently, Onward Orthopedic partner surgeons utilize this technology to perform total hip replacements in Phoenix, AZ.

 

Benefits of Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology

  • CT derived, 3D modeling enables accurate planning of implant size, orientation and alignment pre-operatively
  • Allows for more natural joint feel and helps preserve healthy tissue and bone
  • Reduces recovery time and shortens hospital stay

Total Hip Replacement

If wear-and-tear has broken down the cartilage cushioning between your hip bones, a total hip replacement may be recommended to relieve pain and restore function. With a total hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint (prosthesis).

 

When to Consider This Procedure:

  • Hip pain limits daily activities like walking or bending
  • Hip pain continues while resting, either day or night
  • Stiffness in a hip limits ability to move or lift the leg
  • Pain has not been relieved from conservative treatment
