Many studies have shown that hip replacements that are well-aligned and balanced are likely to last longer and feel recovered. It can shorten the hospital stay and minimize recovery time.
In computer-assisted surgery, a robot acts as an extended arm of the surgeon’s hands and eyes. The robotics help surgeons operate more efficiently through a smaller incision.
Dr DK Das is among a very high-class group of surgeons who has advanced training in computer navigation surgery.
Benefits of Computer Assisted Hip Surgery
- Improved reliability of reconstructed limb length
- Improved reliability of prosthetic component alignment
- Fewer prosthetic hip joint dislocations
- Shortens hospital stay
- Very less recovery time (patient is able to walk within 3 days of surgery)
- Increases the precision and accuracy
- Decreases errors
