ORTHOPAEDICS AND TRAUMATOLOGY SERVICE
Traumatology is a specialty both medical and surgical (orthopedic surgery).
Traumatology is a specialty that encompasses both lesions of the locomotor system (congenital and acquired) from a multifactorial point of view. That is, both preventive, therapeutic (including rehabilitation), and from the field of research. It includes the musculoskeletal pathologies that affect all stages of life.
This specialty is coined by two names: Orthopedics and Traumatology. Orthopedics deals with the study and treatment of abnormalities of the locomotor system, both of congenital or infectious origin or due to sequelae after trauma.
Our Service of Orthopedic Surgery, Traumatology and Sports Medicine treats any type of condition of the musculoskeletal system.
We are at the forefront in the treatment of orthopedic and traumatological injuries, with the most advanced technological support. We bet decisively for regenerative medicine, minimally invasive, arthroscopic, percutaneous and prosthetic surgery.
Pathology of the extensor and patella apparatus.
The extensor apparatus of the knee is composed of the quadriceps muscle; in turn composed of four bellies that converge in a trilaminar tendon that is inserted into the upper pole of the patella. From this comes the patellar tendon that is inserted into the anterior tuberosity of the tibia (TAT). It constitutes the true motor of the knee, essential for the proper functioning of it.
The pathology of the patella is divided into:
- Traumatic pathology:
- Tendinous ruptures
- Static pathology: because the patella presents:
- Imbalances: the patella is in place, but there are abnormal loads
- Misalignments: The patella is not in place (patello-femoral dysplasias)
- Chondromalacia: it is the final path to which the previous pathologies lead, since the cartilage deteriorates. Cartilage injury that may be secondary to the injury or may be idiopathic
Osteotomy of the femur and tibia: The realignment of the axis of the leg.
Complex ligamentous injuries.
Visco supplementation: is the intraarticular application of hyaluronic acid (HA) is considered a therapeutic alternative in the non-surgical management of osteoarthritis (OA).
Treatment of meniscal, chondral lesions. Ligament plasty.
Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
Mosaicoplasties: is a surgical technique that involves placing articular cartilage in an area where it is damaged, from another area where it is healthy. It is a kind of cartilage graft, it is also called osteochondral autograft.
Treatment of shoulder instability and rotator cuff pathology.
Tendinopathy in athletes and muscle injuries.
Primary hip prostheses
Primary knee prostheses
Infiltrations of shoulder, knee and hip: it is similar to visco-supplementation but the substance to be infiltrated can vary, sometimes it is a medicine: corticoid.
