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. .

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:

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:
The elbow and cartilage is a complex mechanism composed of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It is essential for almost all daily activities.
