Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement
Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement is the newest technology and a most innovative treatment option for adults suffering from hip joint pain typically caused by arthritis. Using the robotic-arm assisted surgery system, surgeons are able to more accurately plan and place implants with consistency, potentially reducing implant wear.
For Mako™ robotic-arm assisted surgery, a 3D virtual model of a patient’s unique anatomy is created based on a CT scan of the patient’s hip and is then used to create a personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako™ system not only increases accuracy but may also result in less blood loss, less pain and a faster recovery.
Florida Hospital Waterman is the first and only hospital in Lake, Sumter, Volusia or Orange County to offer Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement. The team of orthopedic surgeons at Florida Hospital Waterman also have the most experience in Central Florida working with a robotic-assisted surgery system for joint replacement; we were one of the first hospitals in Florida to offer Mako™ Knee Replacement more than three years ago.
In addition to offering the most advanced orthopedic technology available in Lake County, Florida Hospital Waterman is the only hospital in the area to achieve the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Knee and Hip replacement. The certification recognizes Florida Hospital Waterman Joint Replacement Center’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s state-of-the- art standards for quality and safety.
