the First FDA-Cleared Mixed-Reality Navigation System for Hip Replacement.

Request More Information

The next generation of surgical navigation is here.

The HipInsight™ system is the world’s first mixed reality-based digital surgery platform for total hip arthroplasty. The system effectively gives the surgeon “x-ray vision” to see anatomy, instruments, and implants inside the patient’s body in real-time.

This is the kind of technology surgeons have been striving for - when you try it for the first time, it’s just a mind-blowing experience.
