AMIS & Hip Replacement
THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE
The AMIS (Anterior Minimally Invasive Technique) Total Hip Arthroplasty.
The AMIS Technique is performed through an anterior incision of 6 – 8 centimeters. The approach follows natural tissue planes, preserving all muscles surrounding the hip joint. These muscles provide stability and the strength for early recovery and the long term function of the hip. The joint is replaced with a conventional hip prosthesis. With AMIS the method of exposing the hip is improved.
AMIS IN TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT
The AMIS technique preserves the muscles surrounding the hip joint. These muscles are essential for early recovery and long term hip function.
The AMIS Total Hip Replacement will help you to enjoy an active life, free from the pain that prevents you enjoying the little pleasures in life. Your new hip prosthesis will help you resume activities that were previously impossible, allowing you to continue a fulfilled life of freedom.

ADVANTAGES SPECIFIC TO AMIS TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT
Hip Joint Replacement will improve the function of the hip and relieve the pain caused by a degenerative hip joint.
The AMIS Technique further improves on the benefits of hip replacement:
– OSTEOARTHROSIS OF THE HIP –
Osteoarthritis of the hip develops due to the degeneration of the cartilage lining the hip joint. This leads to pain in the back, buttock, groin and thigh spreading to the knee. In advanced osteoarthritis of the hip the hip becomes stiff, resulting in loss of mobility. Due to pain and stiffness the patient develops impairment of activity and mobility. This usually leads to significant deterioration of quality of life. Osteoarthritis of the hip can be effectively treated by total hip replacement surgery. The AMIS hip replacement technique will make your hip replacement less painful, and your recovery much easier. This will enable you to continue with a productive and comfortable life without pain.
– OSTEOARTHROSIS OF THE KNEE –
Osteoarthritis, commonly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, is a condition in which the natural cushioning between joints — cartilage — wears away. When this happens, the bones of the joints rub more closely against one another with less of the shock-absorbing benefits of cartilage. The rubbing results in pain, swelling, stiffness, decreased ability to move and, sometimes, the formation of bone spurs. Due to pain and stiffness the patient develops impairment of activity and mobility. This usually leads to significant deterioration of quality of life. Osteoarthritis of the knee can be effectively treated by knee replacement surgery. The AMIS knee replacement technique will make your hip replacement less painful, and your recovery much easier. This will enable you to continue with a productive and comfortable life without pain.
