Introduction

Dr. Domb performs a variety of minimally invasive hip procedures. For patients with a history of osteoarthritis of the hip, he may recommend minimally invasive robotic hip replacement. Robotic-assisted hip replacement has several advantages compared to traditional hip surgery. The robotic systems consist of a robotic arm extension and software that is designed to customize your hip replacement to your anatomy. The surgery is performed by your surgeon, who uses the robotic system to ensure that each movement is made with the greatest amount of precision.

Prior to robotic-guided hip replacement, a computed tomography (CT) scan is performed to create a 3D model of your pelvis. This CT scan is integrated into the robotic software and is used to accurately guide your surgeon during the surgery.

The advantages of robotic hip surgery include:

  • Minimally invasive.
    • The surgery is completed with the use of a 3-inch incision in most cases.
    • Surgery is done between the muscles without cutting any of the major muscles or tendons of the hip.
  • Improved accuracy.
    • Fewer post-surgical complications such as implant wear, dislocation and impingement.
    • Reduced pain, scarring, and minimal blood loss.
    • Faster recovery and return to regular activities.
    • Optimal positioning of the prosthetic implants for a more natural feeling joint after surgery.

Many studies have indicated greater precision with the use of robotic-guidance in comparison to surgery that is performed by hand, with the goal of improving clinical outcomes. Dr. Domb and the American Hip Institute have published results demonstrating improved accuracy using robotics.
