Today we finish our week on Anterior Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery (AMIS), presented by Dr. Jeffrey Rich, DO. Here are his thoughts as a committed physician on why having surgery at tmmc.

"Besides the clinical expertise and technical advantages of performing a procedure at tmmc, the professionalism and hospitality of all staff enhances the patient's experience. There's excellence in all areas: the nursing team prior to the surgery, the anesthesia team, to the recovery team and ancillary staff in every floor, plus the patient ambassadors. Tmmc is much more than a hospital, it's a first class find, unlike any hospital any patient has seen in the region."

Patients needing Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS)
usually ask if the implant materials in this procedure are the same as those used in any other hip replacement.

Dr. Jeffrey Rich, DO, Board Certified AOBOS (American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery) and committed physician at tmmc answers they are.

"The implants used in this procedure are the same material as any other hip replacement. Most commonly used is the press fit porous coated metal with a plastic liner and a ceramic head. There are differences in the femoral stem geometry and the AMIS stem allows for easy insertion while maintaining normal hip biomechanics. Options are available depending on the patient, and they can always be discussed with the surgeon.

Continuing our week of facts on Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS), with Dr. Jeffrey Rich, DO, readers may want to know the limitations after this surgery, if any. Read on, there are none.
AMIS [Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery] is a total hip joint replacement where the hip joint is replaced by an artificial ball and socket. With the AMIS technique, the normal post-surgery restrictions are not needed. With standard hip replacement, the patient usually needs to keep a pillow between the legs after surgery. This is not required after AMIS. With the standard approaches, restrictions include not crossing the legs, sleeping on the back, not picking up things off the floor, and not tying shoes for 6 weeks to 3 months. With the AMIS approach, these restrictions are not needed, allowing parients to return to your normal activities faster.

Todays AMIS topic: Why have anterior hip replacement?

The AMIS technique does not cut muscles and avoids the nerve distribution to the muscles while also allowing the muscles to return to their normal position after the implants are placed. The AMIS technique is more conservative than other techniques as the muscles are spread, not cut, which allows for a more rapid recovery through less pain, shorter hospital stay, smaller incision, low dislocation rate, no restrictions after the surgery, and less chance of limping. All of these things allow you to return to the activities that you love faster. For additional information on Dr. Jeffrey Rich and surgery withy us, contact us at info@miamimedicalcenter.com

Welcome to our week with Jeffrey A. Rich, DO sharing expertise on minimally invasive hip procedures.
What is AMIS?
AMIS is anterior minimally invasive surgery in hip replacement used to better the patient's recovery and improve quality of life more rapidly.
...
There are several surgical approaches to hip replacement: anterior (through the front of the hip) versus posterior (through the back of the hip) methods. In the human body, the hip joint has had the most success in replacements, it brings the quickest recovery and is the most durable.
The posterior approach to total hip replacement is the most commonly used method but as medicine strives to shorten surgical and recovery time, minimally invasive techniques such as anterior total hip replacement have gained interest.
