AMIS HIP REPLACEMENT
- ANTERIOR MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY -
The AMIS Technique preserves the muscles surrounding the hip joint. These muscles are essential for early recovery and long term hip function. AMIS Hip Replacement patients rehabilitate much faster with less pain and discomfort. Hip Joint Replacement will improve the function of the hip and relieve the pain caused by a degenerative hip joint.
The mission of the Medacta Group is to allow patients to regain a healthier and more active lifestyle through products and services which render surgery and rehabilitation simpler, faster and more effective. In order to achieve this goal, as well as to facilitate the conception and development of new and better performing products, Medacta constantly works together with surgeons all over the world.
