Minimally Invasive Surgery

In addition to advancement of the prostheses there were also several efforts to improve surgical techniques in recent years. In this respect the so-called minimally invasive approaches are performed to minimize the perioperative damage to soft tissues around the hip joint and therefore to improve the mobility of patients. While 15 years ago incisions of 20 cm were still standard for hip replacements, it is now possible to perform the implantation with 7-9 cm long incisions.

At the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Hospital of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich, Campus Grosshadern we perform the AMIS technique as well as a minimally invasive modified Hardinge approach. AMIS stands for anterior minimally invasive surgery. Here the hip joint is exposed minimally invasive from the front side using a special operating table without harming the muscles.
