Total Hip Replacement (Robotic Assisted) in Ridgewood, NJ

Total Hip Replacement (Robotic Assisted) in Ridgewood, NJ

Non-inflammatory and inflammatory degenerative joint disease in your hips can make something as simple as taking a walk an extremely painful experience. Pain relief methods such as medication or physical therapy can help to a point, but when your condition no longer responds to these treatments, hip replacement surgery may be the only option.

With the help of an interactive robotic arm, a skilled orthopedic surgeon can significantly improve the accuracy of this procedure. It can not only restore the movement you've lost in your hip, but virtually eliminate your pain. If you've been experiencing chronic hip pain, please call (201) 806-6099 or contact Medwell Orthopedics & Functional Medicine for Men & Women online.

Degenerative Joint Diseases of the Hip

The obvious sign that there is damage to your hip joint is chronic pain, but there are certain types of pain that you should be aware of:

  • Pain when putting weight on the hip
  • Pain or stiffness when moving, causing you to limp
  • Pain that radiates to the groin, buttocks, lower back or down the thigh

Degenerative Joint Diseases of the Hip

A hip joint can wear down due to repetitive strain, illness, or conditions you inherited through your genes. Here are some of the common types of degenerative joint diseases:

  • Osteoarthritis: Breakdown of cartilage due to wear and tear.
  • Arthritis : Joint pain resulting from a previous injury.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune disease where your white blood cells attack the healthy tissues in your joints.
  • Avascular necrosis: Loss of blood flow to the ball of the hip joint, causing it to become misshapen.
  • Hip dysplasia: Genetic misalignment of the hip joint.

Robotic Assisted Hip Replacement Surgery

Prior to your surgery, your doctor will administer a CT scan. This will be used to produce a “3D” image of your hip that will assist in the creation of a surgical plan for the procedure.

During surgery, your doctor will use a robotic arm to prepare the hip for implants. It will also be used during the installation of the implants. This interactive device provides the surgeon with real-time audio, visual, and tactile feedback throughout the entire process.

The Results

The enhanced accuracy that a robotic arm can provide will result in a higher level of pain relief and restored mobility. It improves upon the already impressive skills of an experienced orthopedic surgeon. If you have been suffering from chronic hip pain, please call (201) 806-6099 or contact Medwell Orthopedics & Functional Medicine for Men & Women online.
