At Mississippi Orthopaedic Institute, our first approach is always prevention before surgery. However, there are cases that require surgical intervention.
Have you ever experienced your vehicle when it is out of alignment—your car movement doesn’t feel right and your tires may produce uneven wear, requiring you to need a new set? Joints in the body work in a very similar fashion.
When patients require a total joint replacement, proper placement and alignment of the implant is critical to the implant’s overall longevity and function. ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery combines surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system, similar to a navigation device in your car, to perform your joint replacement surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision.
ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery is most commonly used with surgeries of the shoulder and knee.
