“With patient expectations increasing”, said Prof. Faldini, “innovative techniques allow most of my patients to recover very quickly, because - the hip engine - represented by muscles, tendons, vessels and nerves, is preserved. The patient is then able to walk as soon as he awakens from anesthesia. After a few weeks of simple attention, you can return to a completely normal life. Sports such as, skiing, swimming, cycling, can also be resumed within 3-6 months”.
The AMIS technique
, informed by decades of clinical experience, is now a succesfully muscle-sparing approach to total hip replacement, with more than 300,000 procedures perfomed, that is associated with potential positive patient outcomes like shorter hospitalization and rehabilitation time, as well as a faster return to daily activities.
