Joint replacement system distributor Medacta USA Inc. announced that the first hip replacement procedures in the U.S. featuring its muscle-sparing AMIS technique have been performed. In the past four years, more than 10,000 procedures have been performed around the world using the AMIS technique and Medacta’s patented Mobile Leg Positioner. Unlike the traditional hip replacement surgical techniques in which the surgeon cuts or dissects the muscles in order to replace the patient’s hip joint, AMIS is a minimally-invasive total hip replacement surgical procedure where there are no muscle cuts, according to Camarillo-based Medacta. The desired result is that recovery time is reduced.
