Dr Kiyork is very pleased to be able to offer the Mako™ robotic arm assisted platform for his patients at both Sydney Adventist Hospital and at The Northern Beaches Hospital.
This exciting and advanced technology allows for high levels of accuracy in acetabular bone reaming as well as placement of the acetabular component.
A pre-operative CT scan of the pelvis is performed. This allows three dimensional measurements to be made of the acetabulum as well as length and offset. Dr Kiyork is able to plan, in three dimensions, cup placement in terms of depth, inclination and ante-version. The Mako robotic arm then helps him achieve the pre-operative planned resection and implantation of the cup to a high degree of accuracy.
As in all cases, each individual patient’s situation differs and a formal clinical assessment is made before treatment is recommended, whether that treatment be non-operative or operative. The decision to go ahead with surgery, if indicated, is made with the informed consent of the patient.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. The information provided here is for general educational purposes only and not to be taken as specific advice. Please contact Dr Kiyork's rooms about whether a robotic hip replacement is appropriate for your individual situation.
