Dr Jan Joubert, Orthopaedic Surgeon at Dr Jan D Joubert Inc, says: “We wanted to implement the AMIS (Anterior Minimally Invasive Technique) Total Hip Arthroplasty technique because of the improved outcomes the patients were experiencing and because despite hip replacement being one of the flagship and most successful procedures in Orthopaedic surgery it did not come without challenges that could be improved upon.”

Anyone familiar with the Orthopaedic Surgery profession will probably have noticed how everyone always seem to stick to the conventional hip replacement techniques which are invasive, more involved and patients take longer to recover from the surgery. We felt this was a problem because longer recovery, limited mobility and more pain inhibits your recovery and makes the whole process unpleasant..”
