It comprises of the acetabular component, femoral stem and the articulating surfaces. The longevity of the implants can further improve with advanced surface technologies such as Ceramic (Biolox®)/highly cross-linked polyethylene.
The accuracy of total hip replacement surgery in Singapore can be further improved with Robotic Surgery (Makoplasty®) .
Patients undergoing total hip replacement surgery in Singapore using this technique will undergo a pre-op ct scan of the lower limb, all the important parameters in the lower limb are then captured and entered into the computer. These data will then merged with the real-life anatomical landmarks of the patient on the surgical table, and the surgeon can use this robotic arm to perform the hip replacement surgery to pin point accuracy.
