Anterior Hip Replacements

The AMIS – anterior hip is a true minimally invasive muscle sparing (inter-muscular and inter-nervous plane) procedure. It has been carried out in Europe for several years with very good success. The incision is smaller than the traditional posterior/lateral or anterolateral approaches and the muscles preserved. This approach can also be achieved through a bikini line scar on the front of the hip joint rather than a longitudinal (straight line) scar
