AMIS (Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery) is an evolution of the anterior approach: It follows the same intermuscular and internervous path but makes the technique more straightforward and reproducible through dedicated instruments and sequential releases of femoral attachments.
Minimally Invasive Surgery is often related to new challenges and struggles and thus a steep learning curve during the first cases. To reduce these difficulties, Medacta provides comprehensive support when starting with AMIS. This is why Medacta created the M.O.R.E. AMIS Education Program driven by the M.O.R.E. Institute and an ever-growing network of world-renowned experts.
Join one of our wet labs, courses, surgeon-to-surgeon visits, M.O.R.E. symposia or “Meet the Expert” sessions to find out more about Medacta’s offering for Anterior Approach. Please reach out to your local rep for more details on the activities in your area or contact us.
The role of personalized education: My AMIS experience - Chien-Wen Liew - 9th M.O.R.E. International Symposium
Discover our continuous education opportunities designed to master the AMIS approach from the simplest primary hip arthroplasties to the most complex cases. No capsular release, Bikini Incision and Revision THA are just some examples of the techniques featured at our events, where you can share your experience and learn from other experts.
The development of a standardized and simplified surgical technique for the anterior approach, with specific instrumentation and a personalized education program – the AMIS approach – strives to further respect the periarticular structures, in particular the capsule, usually released to efficiently expose the femur. In fact, a reduced capsular release potentially results in less bleeding and better hip functionality.
If the AMIS technique is no longer a secret to you, then challenge yourself with the ultimate next step: the AMIS Bikini Incision.
