“I use the ROSA robot from Zimmer Biomet which is a new system that provides many advantages over traditional approaches for hip replacement system, including:

  • Minimally invasive techniques with smaller incisions
  • Robotic system designed to use the Anterior approach
  • Improved accuracy of component positioning
  • Lower risk of hip dislocation
  • Efficient system, lower operating room time
  • Accelerated recovery time due to minimal trauma to muscles, tendons, and nerves
  • Patient-specific planning
  • Lower radiation exposure
