Non-invasive hip surgery – no muscle cut

Patients suffering from hip pain and discomfort are now able to undergo
one of two non-invasive procedures that dramatically speed up recovery and thus return to life-as-normal.

Arthroscopic Hip Procedure provides relief and significant improvement for a variety of hip injuries.

AMIS [Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery] is a total joint replacement where the hip joint is replaced by an artificial ball and socket.
Both procedures allow for surgery with minimal body trauma;
involving the muscles, blood vessels and nerves which are encountered on the way in to the hip joint. These are preserved, which is fundamental to a fast recovery.

Benefits include

  • No muscles are cut
  • Small incisions
  • Less blood loss, less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less scarring
  • Less risk of dislocation in AMIS patients
  • Faster return to mobility
