15 years of AMIS hip arthroplasty - minimally invasive hip surgery
More than 1500 self-performed American hip operations.
25 years of experience in hip arthroplasty
In June 2004 I started implanting hip prostheses in Upper Austria using the minimally invasive anterior approach - also known as AMIS technology - in a muscle-friendly manner. This surgical method, which was brought to Upper Austria at the time, is now standard at Orthopädie Gmunden.
Since then I have been able to use the muscle-sparing Amis hip surgery technique for over a thousand hip implants.
This minimally invasive surgical procedure has proven itself particularly in complex initial operations such as dysplasia or arthrosis caused by accidents, but also in revision surgery on the socket and the prosthesis shaft.
Prosthesis plain bearings can also be changed in this way to preserve the muscles.
Advantages of the AMIS technology:
- Only a small incision is required
- The muscles remain uninjured
- Change operations can be carried out safely
- The technology is safe:
- Nerves and vascular injuries are hardly possible
- The risk of infection is low
- Titanium implants with the most modern design
- Surface structure optimized for good healing: titanium plasma spray + HA coating
- AMIS Proxima stem: shortened, bone-sparing stem with high primary stability
- VERSAFIT cup: hemispherical, pole-flattened titanium cup
