See how intellijoint HIP helped enhance Patrick’s hip replacement surgery and reduce associated risks. 
“Post-operatively, I feel amazing! With the second hip [replacement] I progressed at light speed having confidence with my first hip. With the Intellijoint alignment of my second hip, being spot on with my leg length, I felt natural again. I felt like I could stretch and I didn’t have the impinged feeling I had been experiencing for 20 plus years.”

For Primaries 

With intellijoint HIP’s 3D mini-optical navigation technology, surgeons are able to obtain vital intraoperative measurements during hip replacement surgery which assists with accurate size selection, positioning and alignment of implants16.

For Revisions

During a revision total hip replacement, Intellijoint HIP helps the surgeon pin point the cause of symptoms and determine which implants need to be removed or modified. Intraoperative measurements guide the surgeon in accurately positioning the new implants. Intellijoint HIP can assist in bone preservation where possible and reduced the risk of re-revision caused by dislocation 36

There are three critical measurements related to the selection, positioning and alignment of the new artificial hip components including:

Cup Position Icon

CUP POSITION

The angle of the artificial cup that is fastened to your pelvis is very important.

Leg Legth Icon

LEG LENGTH

Leg length discrepancy (LLD) is a condition where one leg ends up either shorter or longer than the other following your hip replacement surgery

 

 

Offset Icon

OFFSET

It is critical to maintain this distance after inserting your new hip components to ensure a successful hip replacement surgery.

 

Hip replacement surgery generally leads to positive results however, dissatisfaction is reported between 15-30% of patients 17 18 24

 

Up to 62% 

of cups are not placed within a target range using manual techniques6

Cup Placement Issues
LLD Issues

LLD > 5mm can occur in up to 49% of all traditional initial hip replacement procedures37

Revision hip surgery, hospital readmission, hip instability/dislocation, implant loosening, leg length inequality & premature implant wear.
