"Arthroplasty" refers to the surgical reconstruction or replacement of a joint.

Direct anterior total hip arthroplasty or replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery performed to replace the total hip joint without cutting through any major muscles. It is also referred to as muscle sparing surgery because no major muscles are cut enabling a quicker return to normal activity.

Robotic-assisted hip surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where your surgeon is assisted by a robotic system to perform the surgery.

The robotic system consists of a surgeon's console, robotic arms, a high-performance vision system and special surgical instruments. A computed tomography (CT) scan is taken before the surgery to create a 3D model of the affected hip joint. This is interpreted by the system, which accurately guides your surgeon. Unlike a traditional surgery, this procedure is performed through small incisions.

Complex joint reconstruction surgery is performed to restore joint stability, improve lost functionality, and relieve pain.

Hip joint and knee joint replacements are helping people of all ages live pain- free, active lives.

Joints are formed by the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth and low-friction movement of the joint. If the cartilage becomes damaged by disease or injury, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, causing pain. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing more pain.
