Technology Assisted Hip Replacement Surgery

VELYS Hip Navigation is an innovative, non-invasive technology that your surgeon uses to help with accuracy and precision in hip replacement surgery. 

During surgery, a picture called a fluoroscopic image is taken of your hip and analyzed in real-time, with the aim of achieving the best alignment and placement of your new hip implants.

This technology was formerly known as JOINTPOINT® Hip Navigation System.

Advantages of VELYS Hip Navigation

There may be advantages when a surgeon chooses to use VELYS™ Hip Navigation. This technology may assist in restoring your leg length, which in turn, may lead to better hip stability and preservation of your hip’s natural movement. Due to the ability to verify the desired implant position, your surgeon can potentially reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation and increase your joint’s stability.  Finally, utilizing this technology can potentially increase operating room efficiency and reduce operative time.

Here’s how it works:

  • The information obtained with VELYS Hip Navigation is used by your surgeon to enhance accurate and precise selection and placement of your implants.
  • Each person’s hips are unique. Before surgery, a fluoroscopic image is taken of your hip bones and entered into VELYS Hip Navigation to help determine the unique size of your bones and which implant sizes may fit best.
  • During surgery, your surgeon will use trial instruments to analyze the best position for your final implants. One last fluoroscopic image is taken to confirm that the final position of your implants is exactly right for your hip.
