You’ve just been diagnosed with a condition requiring hip replacement surgery.
Until recently, your main option was traditional surgery which has risks such as dislocation or leg length discrepancy.
…having an instrument that may lower the possibility of complications from your surgery including leg length discrepancy and joint instability.
Leg length discrepancy can result in nerve impairment, gait abnormalities and lower back pain.
Joint instability can result in higher dislocation rates, implant wear and potential revision surgery.
With intellijoint HIP, surgeons and hospitals are aligning with the goals of enhancing the quality of care.
Ask your surgeon about using intellijoint HIP for your hip surgery or locate a surgeon using intellijoint HIP near you.
There are three critical measurements related to the selection, positioning and alignment of the new artificial hip components including:
The angle of the artificial cup that is fastened to your pelvis is very important.
Leg length discrepancy (LLD) is a condition where one leg ends up either shorter or longer than the other following your hip replacement surgery
It is critical to maintain this distance after inserting your new hip components to ensure a successful hip replacement surgery.
Can assist in the prevention of:
- Revision hip surgery
- Hospital readmission
- Hip instability/dislocation
- Implant loosening
- Leg length inequality
- Premature implant wear
