Living in Brevard County has many advantages. Along with a near perfect climate and plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, Brevard County is home to Dr. David Dominguez, the Orthopaedic Surgeon performing state-of-the-art Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery.
If you are experiencing debilitating hip pain due to degenerative osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, an injury, or a functional deformity, you know the pain as well as the limits a diseased or injured hip can bring. Total hip replacement surgery removes the damaged or diseased bone and cartilage and replaces them with implants which replicate your joint, reducing your pain and returning you to the active lifestyle you enjoy.
How Hip Replacement Works with Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
Mako™ Total Hip Replacement by Dr. Dominguez at 3D Sports Medicine is the latest in hip replacement technology performed using a surgeon-controlled robotic arm. The process begins with a thorough examination by Dr. Dominguez which includes a CT scan of your hip. If Dr. Dominguez recommends total hip replacement for you, your CT scan will be used to generate a 3-D model of your hip. The model is then evaluated via the Mako™ Software System to develop your personal, perfect, pre-operative plan.
Mako™ Total Hip Replacement by Dr. Dominguez provides a number of benefits, including:
- Reduced chance of complications compared to traditional hip replacement surgery
- A minimally invasive procedure with 90 percent of patients walking with support in 24 hours
- A smaller incision with minimal loss of blood
- Faster rehabilitation with most patients returning home within three days
During your procedure, Dr. Dominguez guides the robotic arm in preparation, removing diseased or damage bone and preserving your healthy bone. He continues the procedure by positioning your implant, making needed adjustments, and ensuring accurate placement and ideal alignment of your implant.
