The hip is a complex and essential joint which supports the body’s full weight. It is formed where the head of the femur (thigh bone) meets the socket of the pelvis (acetabulum).
The knee joint is not only the largest joint in the body, but also the most complex. Absorbing three to six times your body weight with each step, it is one of the most stressed and commonly damaged joints.
Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects joints including bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. Osteoarthritis can include inflammation of the tissue around the hip joint, damage to joint surface cartilage, bony spurs growing around the edge of the hip joint and/or deterioration of the ligaments and tendons that hold the joint together.
Robotic surgery utilises computer-assisted planning combined with a robotic arm guided by your surgeon. It is an advancement of a current technology using computer navigation to assist positioning of a joint replacement implant.
