Computer systems have been made to assist with common joint replacement surgeries, like for hip and knee.

The computer system makes a precise 3D model of your joint, and provides real-time guides for the surgeon's tools as they do the replacement. Because there is the model, the cuts can be more exact and the implant can fit better than in traditional surgeries.

Like all joint replacement surgeries, you'll have some restrictions on what you can do after surgery and will need to complete physical therapy as you're healing.
