Anterior Hip Foundation Technologies
For many years, the anterior approach hip replacement surgery was performed without the benefit of highly specialized, procedure-specific instruments that are available today. As the surgical technique and surgical process continued to improve, new methods of preserving muscle, reducing tissue injury, and optimizing component placement were invented and made available to orthopedic physicians.
Today, the most reproducible and consistent method of performing an anterior approach hip replacement consists of several key technologies. The AHF Preferred Technology™ signifies clinical evaluation and support from members of the Anterior Hip Foundation. The Medical Enterprises Distribution ME1000 Impact System is one of the first technologies to hold the mark of AHF Preferred Technology™.
