Anterior Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery

Anterior Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery

What is AMIHS?

They key factor to Anterior hip surgery is the approach... the surgeon does not have to cut muscles to access the hip.

• Anterior means to approach from the front of the hip joint instead of lateral (side) or posterior (back).

• Muscles do not need to be cut or detached from the pelvis or femur.

• Recovery from Anterior hip replacement surgery is much quicker.

• Less post-operative pain

• You should return to daily activities quicker.
