FIRST OF ALL...

WHEN SHOULD I SEE THE TRAUMATOLOGIST?

The traumatologist deals with osteomuscular pathologies : bone, muscle, joints, as well as tendon and ligamentous pathologies. Much of our work focuses on bone fractures. Muscular and ligamentous injuries, fibrillar ruptures and tendinitis due to overload in sports practice or work activity and joint degeneration due to age are also common.

If you have suffered some type of  direct trauma with intense pain that does not subside with rest  or you have  a serious ailment  that is (or is not)  associated  with a specific activity or training overload  and limits the functionality of your body, you are in the right place. . 

Main symptoms:

  • Knee pain.
  • Hip pain.
  • Leg pain or numbness (sciatica).
  • elbow pain
  • Foot pain.
  • Lower back pain (Lumbago).
  • Upper back pain.
  • Hand pain.
  • Neck pain (cervicalgia).
  • Shoulder pain.
  • dropped shoulder
  • Numbness of legs and arms.

FEELING PAIN IS NO LONGER AN OPTION,

RECOVER MOBILITY, YES.

Injuries that most often occur during sports or exercise, such as sprains, strains, and stress fractures. This health topic focuses on the types of sports injuries that affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones.

Joint replacement  is recommended to eliminate pain and disability caused by extensive joint destruction . This may be because the joint surfaces may be damaged by osteoarthritis, a process that causes the joint cartilage to wear away.

The joint prostheses that are placed most frequently are:

-Hip 

-Knee 

-Shoulder

Therefore we cannot treat an injury in the same way in adults and children or adolescents. For this reason, trauma injuries or orthopedic defects should be managed by specialists.

Arthroscopy is a procedure to diagnose and treat joint problems. A thin tube connected to a fiber optic video camera is inserted through a small buttonhole-sized incision. The image inside the joint is transmitted to a high-definition video monitor.

 

Arthroscopy allows us to see inside the joint without making a large incision.

Arthroscopy is used primarily to diagnose and treat a variety of joint conditions, most often those that affect the following:

  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Ankle
  • Hip
  • Wrist

CONDITIONS

HOMBRO

The shoulder is the joint with the greatest range of movement in the entire body, this gives it a significant propensity to injuries due to instability and overuse. Currently, most shoulder injuries can be treated nonoperatively or with minimally invasive techniques.

Some common shoulder conditions include:

-Anterior, posterior or multidirectional instability.
-Anterior, posterior or multidirectional dislocation.
-Rotator cuff injury.
-Biceps tendinitis.
-Labral
tears -Bursitis
-Osteoarthritis
-Fractured clavicle.
-Acromioclavicular dislocation.

-Anterior cruciate ligament injury

The spine makes up most of the axial skeleton. It is made up of vertebrae which are joined together through intervertebral joints that provide a flexible but strong support to the chest and limbs, as well as offering protection to the spinal cord.

Like other joints and bones in the body, over time the spine tends to present different degenerative injuries, which vary according to sex, age, professional and recreational activity, patient comorbidities, etc.

Some spinal conditions and their treatments include: 

  • cervical disc herniation
  • lumbar disc herniation
  • Cervical canal stenosis
  • lumbar canal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • facet syndrome
  • vertebral fractures
  • Low back pain (lumbar pain) of different origins

-Injury to the collateral ligaments of the elbow.

Having an elbow injury can prevent you from being able to use your arm for daily tasks, especially if it is a serious injury. Fortunately, there are several surgical and non-surgical treatment options available to relieve elbow pain and heal these injuries.

Soy terapeuta y mi medio de trabajo son mis brazos. Por sobrecarga de trabajo he llegado a lastimar mi hombro y codo provocando una lesión tendinosa. Ya tenia un año con el problema y por miedo a que me quisieran hacer una cirugía no había acudido con un especialista. Gracias a Dios me recomendaron al Dr Rea y hoy acudí con él a consulta. Resolvió todas mis dudas, me realizó una infiltración (inyección de medicamento para aliviar dolor e inflamación) y la mejoría es super rápida. Me brindó la opción de iniciar con tratamiento conservador y recuperar la total función de mi brazo con rehabilitación. Agradezco al doctor por su paciencia y lo recomiendo con confianza. Acudan con su especialista, el es el más capacitado para resolver sus problemas.

Soy estudiante de la licenciatura en medicina y conocí al Dr. Rea en el hospital donde realicé mi internado. Desde que observé como trataba a sus pacientes, su rapidez para solucionar problemas, su puntualidad y su amplio conocimiento en su área, se ganó mi admiración y respeto. No me queda duda que traumatólogos ortopedistas hay muchos, pero él es una persona muy preparada y amable a la que te puedes acercar en cualquier momento que lo necesites, ya sea para resolver tus dudas, calmar tu dolor o algo tan avanzado como una cirugía, en caso de ser necesaria. Sin duda un excelente médico.
