Results of total hip arthroplasty are typically excellent; however, failures do occur and may be technique dependent. Component position and orientation affect clinical metrics and outcomes. The use of computer-guided navigation and haptic robotic technology improves surgical precision compared to conventional methods, which may result in more reliable clinical outcomes. This can be particularly helpful in the context of anatomic deformity or structural bone loss. Preoperative planning and surgical techniques for this approach are described here, as well as results from our experience and the published literature.
