MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology is the world leading technology in Joint Replacement
Dr. Praharsha Mulpur is a Board-certified Orthopedic surgeon who is well-trained and certified with hands-on experience to perform all types of joint replacement procedures using Mako technology. Sunshine Hospitals is the first Orthopaedic Hospital in Hyderabad to use Mako Robotic-arm assisted technology for all types of joint replacement procedures – Total knee replacement, Partial Knee Replacement and Total Hip Replacement procedures.
Dr. Praharsha Mulpur provides this cutting-edge technology to his patients owing to the several benefits this robotic technology offers.
How Robotics can help in Joint Replacements
Robotic assistance surgeries for orthopaedic joint replacement are of different types. At Sunshine Department of Robotic Surgery and Joint Replacement, the best Orthopedic surgeon in Hyderabad who specializes in all types of robotic joint replacement work in collaboration to achieve the best and most accurate results.
Dr. Praharsha Mulpur – is an experienced, Mako certified joint replacement surgeon.
He plans sophisticated scanning CT scan prior to performing the surgery to plan the extent of bone that needs to be removed and to help in maximizing the accuracy of the alignment and placement of the implant.
During the advanced and the most precise robotic assisted surgery, the plan that ensures exact dimensions to be followed is implemented. The robotic arm by following this plan removes just enough, but not excess bone.
Robotic Arm Helps in Achieving the Exact Orientation
For the best Orthopedic surgeon who specializes in Mako Robotic Orthopedic surgery in Hyderabad – the robotic arm provides exceptional auditory, visual and tactile feedback. The robot thus helps achieve the desire orientation with this feedback. It helps in augmented mobility and improved stability of the implanted joint.
For a majority of the Orthopedic surgeons, the most difficult part of joint replacement surgery (Knee joint replacement and Hip Joint Replacement) is getting the best possible alignment by the apt placement of the individual components of the implant (artificial joint). The ultimate aim of the orthopedic surgeon is to ensure that the individual components mesh together and work smoothly.
At Sunshine Hospitals’ Department of Advanced Orthopaedic Joint Replacement and Robotic Surgery, experienced surgeons use Mako robotic-arm assisted orthopedic surgery for total hip, partial knee and total knee replacement surgeries
During a Mako Robotic-Arm assisted joint replacement surgery, an orthopedic surgeon cuts away damage cartilage and bone and replaces it with an implant made of high-quality components. Artificial implant (Prosthetic) used in a joint replacement surgery is made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers.

Advantages of Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Surgery
There is a reduced risk of complications: The most advanced robotic system in the world helps guide the orthopedic surgeon to be in confinement within the predefined area. This helps in preventing the orthopaedic surgeon from moving away from defined boundaries. The accuracy of this technology is within 2 mm range. The surgeon can get within this range from where they need to be when they make surgical incisions to assess the bone for the implant. The Placement of the implant is more accurate – and thus reduces the risk of complications.
Quicker Recovery and Less Pain Compared to Traditional Joint Replacements
For many patients who undergo joint replacement surgeries, a faster recovery is top of their wish list. It has to be as they have to resume work quickly. Robotic arm assisted surgery provides top-most accuracy and precision, which not only makes the procedure safer, but also less painful.
Personalized surgical plans based on your anatomy
Your Mako certified and trained orthopedic surgeon recommends a CT scan of your complete joint prior to surgery. This plan is used to construct a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. Your surgeon loads this virtual model into the Mako System and with the help of software creates a personalized pre-operative plan.
During the robotic assisted procedure, your surgeon while positioning and preparing the bone and aligning the implant guides the robotic arm according to your personalized pre-operative plan.
