ROSA® Robotic Hip Technology for Hip Replacement

What is ROSA Robotic Technology?

You’re unique and so is your individual anatomy. That’s why Zimmer Biomet offers ROSA® Hip robotic technology. ROSA, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, is designed to help your specially trained surgeon customize the placement of your hip implant just for you. Here, we will explain what makes ROSA Robotics unique, what to expect before surgery, what will happen with the ROSA Hip robot during surgery and what to expect after your surgery.

Why ROSA Robotic Technology?

Getting an accurate1 hip implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following hip replacement surgery. ROSA Robotics uses data collected before your surgery (pre-operative) and during your surgery (intra-operative) to inform your surgeon of many details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit. By using this data to make more informed decisions, your surgeon is able to plan for and carry out a personalized surgery based upon your individual needs.

Why a Robotic Hip Replacement?

ROSA Hip is a minimally invasive hip procedure using a 3-to-6 inch incision2 on the front of your leg, compared to an 8-to-12 inch incision3 on the side or back of your leg with a conventional hip replacement procedure. This minimally invasive hip procedure is called Anterior Supine. It allows your surgeon to have an optimized view of your hip joint during surgery.

This procedure also allows your surgeon to preserve the tissue that keeps your joint tight, which reduces the risk of dislocation4 after surgery. Dislocation is when your hip comes out of the socket.

Every patient’s surgical experience may differ, but the minimally invasive Anterior Supine Hip Procedure with ROSA Hip is designed to:

Accelerate recovery time and reduce pain due to the minimal trauma to muscles, tendons and nerves.4

Reduce scarring from the use of a smaller incision.

More rapid stability of the hip, because muscles are not disrupted during the procedure.4

Less radiation exposure as a CT scan is not required.
