Restore your quality of life

Hip Replacement can make a dramatic improvement to your quality of life. A hip replacement is a common type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one (known as a prosthesis). Adults of any age can be considered for a hip replacement, although most are carried out on people between the ages of 60 and 80. A modern artificial hip joint is designed to last for at least 15 years. Most people experience a significant reduction in pain and some improvement in their range of movement after a hip replacement.

Hip replacement surgery may be considered when the hip joint is worn or damaged to the extent that your mobility is reduced and you experience pain even while resting. A hip replacement is major surgery, so is normally only recommended if other treatments, such as physiotherapy or steroid injections, haven’t helped reduce pain or improve mobility.

What Can I expect from a Hip Replacement?

The main aim of a hip replacement is to reduce the pain you are experiencing from your damaged hip joint, and as a result enable you to do more of the activities you want to. Many people find they can return to activities such as walking, swimming, cycling and golf as a result of their hip replacement.

Frequently asked questions

  • How long has the Mako Robot Assisted Surgery procedure been available?
    The first Mako Partial Knee procedure was performed in June of 2006 and the first Mako Total knee procedure was performed in June of 2016.
  • Does the Mako Robotic Arm actually preform the surgery?
    No, surgery is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, who uses the surgeon-controlled robotic-arm system to pre-plan the surgery and to position the implant. The robotic arm does not perform the surgery nor can it make decisions on its own or move in any way without the surgeon guiding it. The Mako System also allows the surgeon to make adjustments to the patient’s plan during surgery as needed.
  • Can any surgeon undertake Mako Robotic Assisted Surgery?
    No, this is a specialised technique that requires any surgeon using it to be fully trained and certified by MAKO before they can undertake any surgery. Mr Webb is fully certified
  • Am I suitable as a patient to recieve Mako Robotic Arm surgery?
    If it is agreed between you and your surgeon that you are a candidate for hip or knee replacement then yes, you are almost certainly a candidate for robot arm assisted surgery. It is important to discuss fully with your surgeon the potential risks and benefits of any surgery however.
