In the 21st of November 2013 occurred the first live surgery of the MyHip Patient Matched Technology, as part of an event held by the Uniklinik Balgrist named “Orthopedics Update Kontroversen der endoprothetischen Hüftrekonstruktion: Was gibt‘s Neues?”, which means “Orthopedics Update Controversies on hip replacement: What's new”. The surgery was performed with great success by Prof. Dora through the AMIS approach.

The MyHip technology is Medacta’s Patient Matched Technology for the hip joint, based on the success coming from the MyKnee system1. With the MyHip technology the surgeon can benefit from 3D pre-operative planning, that will purpose optimal implant placement and patient specific MyHip Femoral and Acetabular Guides that will aid a straightforward and accurate restoration of the patient’s natural hip function.
