Image Free Computer Surgical Navigation for THR
Patients seeking total hip replacement for relief from arthritis and other painful conditions can now benefit from an advanced procedure that allows for more precise placement of the prosthetic implant device. Image-free computer surgical navigation relies on infrared cameras to mark the specific targeted areas for placement of the implant and the location of the surgical instruments, which are moved robotically during the procedure.
This procedure is still performed under the surgeon’s control but allows for more precise placement of the implant device. This helps patients improve their stability and mobility after surgery, with greater joint functioning overall. There is also a lower incidence of implant malalignment to reduce the number of revision procedures needed. Most patients achieve long-term results from this advanced procedure.
