Total Hip Replacement in Jackson, WY

Experienced Surgeons You Can Trust

At St John’s Health, we understand that total hip replacement surgery can seem intimidating. Rest assured that our team will guide you through every stage of the procedure and create a treatment plan customized for your specific needs. We use the state-of-the-art Mako Robotic Arm surgical device to plan procedures and perform more precise surgeries.

When to Consider Hip Surgery

Like other joint replacement procedures, total hip replacement should only be considered as a last-resort treatment for joint pain. Candidates for total hip replacement include patients with advanced arthritis and severe injuries that have not responded to noninvasive treatments. The goal of this procedure is to remove damaged portions of bone and tissue and replace them with synthetic alternatives.

Hip Replacement with Mako

The Mako Robotic Arm offers a truly personalized approach to hip surgery. To prepare for your surgery, we take a CT scan of the hip which is uploaded into the Mako’s computer. Mako creates a 3D model of the hip to use as a reference while planning the operation. Specific implant points are marked on this 3D model and serve as guides during surgery.

Your operation is still carried out by a surgeon who controls the Mako robotic arm. The Mako does not make any movements on its own.

After Your Hip Replacement

Even with our advanced technology, hip replacement is an intensive surgery and it will take time to recover. You will need to undergo physical therapy to get adjusted to the new hip and regain your range of motion. Hip pain will continuously decrease during this period. After several weeks, you should have significantly improved mobility and reduced pain.
