The anterior approach (AMIS) is the only approach that follows both an intermuscular and internervous path, potentially reducing the risk of damage to periarticular structures, including muscles, tendons, vessels and nerves.
Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty
Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant, that is, a hip prosthesis. A total hip replacement means replacing both the acetabulum and the femoral head.
A hemiarthroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves replacing half of the hip joint, that is, replacing the femoral head. A hemiarthroplasty is generally used to treat a subcapital fracture of the femur.
Revision Hip Arthroplasty
Hip revision surgery is performed to repair an artificial hip joint that has been damaged over time due to an infection, or due to normal wear of the prosthetic implants.
