technique, informed by decades of clinical experience, is now a succesfully muscle-sparing approach to total hip replacement that is associated with potential positive patient outcomes such as shorter hospitalization and rehabilitation time
, as well as a faster return to daily activities
. Today, the AMIS
technique evolved into the concept of the AMIS Experience
, as it is much more than just a surgical technique, it is a complete set of services which provides for healthcare efficiency supportive of economic and commercial advantages for the hospital & surgeon.
