of motion following hip
replacement surgery.

Rump performed an anterior
hip replacement on Lambert
using the Mako roboticarm assisted surgery. This
approach provided several
benefits during surgery and
in recovery.
Prior to surgery, a CT
scan of the hip joint is taken
in order to generate a 3D
virtual model of the patient's
unique anatomy. The 3D
model helps the surgeon see
details that can't typically
be seen with an X-ray alone,
and that information helps
the surgeon determine the
optimal size, placement and position of
the implant.
In the operating room, the surgeon
guides the Mako's robotic arm to remove
the arthritic bone and cartilage from the
hip. As the surgeon prepares to place
the implant into its final position, the
robotic arm guides the implant at the
desired angle and alignment.
Rump employed the "direct anterior approach," which helped shorten
Lambert's recovery time. During hip
replacement, the surgeon has to get
past muscle and soft tissue to access the
bones of the joint, either from the side,
the back or the front of the body. During
the anterior approach, the surgeon
comes from the front and pushes the soft
tissue aside to access the hip joint, rather
than detaching any tendons or muscle.
