The long-term success of cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) may depend on bone ingrowth into the porous-fixation surfaces of the implant. The ingrowth process is facilitated when the surgeon achieves a satisfactory fit for the prosthesis. Clinically or roentgenographically visible failure and persistent thigh pain after cementless THA remain significant problems, both of which may be alleviated by more precise preparation of the femoral canal and selection of an appropriately sized… 
Robotically Milled Bone Cavities in Comparison with Hand-broaching in Total Hip Replacement
TLDR
Experimental work has led to the development and clinical introduction of robotic systems for orthopaedic surgical application and more sophisticated methods of bone cavity preparation have emerged.
Total Hip Arthroplasty Technique: Mako
TLDR
The current state of haptics in total hip replacement including the results of initial validation and the clinical outcomes are described.
Total Knee Arthroplasty Technique: NAVIO
TLDR
The use of robotic technology is a valuable technological development that can help to improve surgical technique and potentially clinical results in total knee arthroplasty.
The Use of ROBODOC in Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty
TLDR
ROBODOC’s ability to place implants within the bone according to the preoperative plan is greatly improved over a conventional manual technique and that outliers have been virtually eliminated.
Current topics in robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty: a review
TLDR
The literature on robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty is reviewed to elucidate the history, advantages, disadvantages, and current clinical understanding of this procedure.
Cement Removal from the Femur Using the ROBODOC System in Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty
TLDR
Bone cement could be safely removed using the ROBODOC system, and no serious complications occurred, and full weight bearing was achieved early in the postoperative course because of circumferential preservation of the femoral cortex.
