Absolutely, all of our orthopedic surgeons are not only highly experienced but also board-certified by the prestigious Consejo Mexicano de Ortopedia y Traumatología (Mexican Council of Orthopedics and Traumatology). This certification is a testament to their dedication and expertise in the field.

We perform a wide range of joint surgeries, including hip and knee replacements, shoulder surgeries, and minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures.
Joint replacement is recommended when conservative treatments no longer provide relief. Your orthopedic specialist will evaluate your condition and discuss options with you.
In general, patients can typically expect to resume light activities within a few days after surgery, but full recovery may take several months. Your orthopedic surgeon will provide personalized guidance based on your unique circumstances, monitor your progress, and make necessary adjustments to your recovery plan. The recovery time after joint replacement surgery can vary widely and depends on several factors:
- Type of Surgery. The specific joint being replaced and the complexity of the procedure play a significant role.
- Patient’s Overall Health. Your general health before surgery can impact recovery. Patients in good overall health may experience a faster and smoother recovery.
- Physical Therapy. Following surgery, physical therapy is a critical component of recovery. How diligently you follow your physical therapy plan and exercises can greatly influence your recovery speed.
It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions and attend all follow-up appointments to optimize your recovery and achieve the best possible outcome.
In our state-of-the-art orthopedic department, we utilize a range of advanced imaging tests to accurately diagnose orthopedic conditions and injuries. These tests could include:
- X-rays: X-rays are a fundamental tool in orthopedic diagnosis. They provide detailed images of bones and can help identify fractures, joint misalignments, and degenerative changes.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI scans use powerful magnets and radio waves to create highly detailed images of soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. MRIs are invaluable for diagnosing issues like torn ligaments, rotator cuff injuries, and cartilage damage.
- Computed Tomography (CT) Scans: CT scans offer cross-sectional views of bones and soft tissues. They are particularly useful for assessing complex fractures, joint abnormalities, and spinal conditions.
- Ultrasound: Ultrasound technology is beneficial for real-time imaging of soft tissues and can help diagnose conditions like tendonitis, bursitis, and joint effusions.
- Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy is a real-time X-ray technique often used during minimally invasive procedures to guide the surgeon and ensure precise placement of implants or instruments.
Having these advanced imaging technologies at our disposal allows our orthopedic specialists to make accurate and timely diagnoses.
