intellijoint HIP®

Studies show that revision surgery is required for up to 15% of all hip replacements with dislocation and instability as the leading reason for revision procedures.1 Dislocation, instability, leg length discrepancy and implant malpositioning are some of the most frequently reported adverse advents in hip replacement that can lead to complaints.2

The intellijoint HIP Navigation System provides breakthrough technology, with the latest innovations in 3D mini-optical navigation to enhance Total Hip Arthroplasty accuracy and is now available with industry leading implants through an exclusive partnership with Zimmer Biomet in Australia and New Zealand.

Smart. Simple. Sophisticated.

Smart:

  • Provides vital, real-time intraoperative measurements to ensure proper size, selection and implant positioning
  • Measurements track patient movement and anatomical variations, which can reduce surgical outliers3

Simple:

  • The intellijoint HIP System is easy to use. It is surgeon controlled from within the sterile field and requires no additional OR support
  • The simple system interface walks users through the workflow step-by-step to ensure ease of use
  • Camera can be removed when not in use
  • Fast: on average only 2.9 minutes is added to the operating time during THA4

Sophisticated:

  • intellijoint HIP offers flexible solutions to keep the surgeon in control, it is compatible with Anterior, Lateral, and Posterior THA techniques for both primary and revision THA
  • Includes smart patient tracking to capture patient movement during surgery, which may decrease the potential for component malposition
