The HipXpert Patient-Specific Mechanical Navigation System has received 510K clearance from the FDA for navigation of any acetabular component. The system also has CE mark.
The HipXpert is used on a per-case basis. The re-useable instrument and preliminary surgery plan are provided to the surgeon for each procedure. The surgeon can then adjust the goal of cup orientation as needed either before or even during surgery.
The patient-specific surgery plan is developed after image and demographic data are securely uploaded from the radiology department that the surgeon chooses. The preliminary patient-specific surgery plan is created and posted to the surgeon's folder on the website. The surgeon then logs on, downloads the plan, opens on the computer in the OR, and adjusts the plan as needed. The sterile HipXpert instrument is then adjusted for that patient.
