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.

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
