Have you ever had severe muscle or joint pain? Most people have experienced back, knee, neck, joint pain, and similar injuries. These result from a fall, accidents, and when playing sports. Of course, and old age can be a trigger that affects the joints severely. However, it is possible to regain mobility and experience pain relief thanks to state-of-the-art methods used by the best orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana.
Modern orthopedic methods have proven to be essential aids to repair injuries and stop the joints’ degenerative processes. However, orthopedic surgeries can be awfully expensive in the United States and Canada. Thus, many people, especially Americans, decide to take a quick trip across the border or fly to Mexico to receive the same -sometimes better- medical attention at very affordable prices. Besides, patients can receive immediate attention. Whereas in the US, the waiting times could be up to three years.
Therefore, at Health & Wellness Bazaar, we have a top-rated orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana with the highest credentials. He has performed thousands of successful surgeries and procedures -both minor and very complex- allowing numerous patients to enjoy mobility and increased quality of life.
What does an orthopedic surgeon do?
Our musculoskeletal system is extraordinarily complex and encompasses bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves. All of these together allow our body to work together as one while staying active. Orthopedic surgery is a medical specialty that uses medical and surgical methods to correct muscle and joint problems. Moreover, orthopedic treatments aim to correct bad posture or avoid deformations. Usually, after a diagnosis, treatments, rehabilitation, and prevention of musculoskeletal system injuries are provided. Yet, sometimes, the only solution is through orthopedic surgery and prosthesis.
Therefore, thanks to a state-of-the-art prosthesis, an orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana can improve or replace some part of the musculoskeletal system that no longer works as it’s supposed to.
Some years ago, orthopedics was only focused on children with deformities. However, today this specialty is also dedicated to patients of all ages. Those most qualified for orthopedic surgery are patients who have experienced acute or severe pain in muscles or joints. They could be high-performance athletes, the elderly, or those who have been in an accident or have severe arthritis. All those events can prevent someone from moving some parts of the body or even the entire body. If they are not treated promptly, they can lead to other health problems.
Most common orthopedic treatments
Orthopedic surgeons in Tijuana specialize in different parts of the body. The most common treatments that address serious conditions severe reduce a person’s mobility are the following:
- Hip replacement surgery. – This surgery is safe and effective. If you have arthritis or your hip has been damaged by a fracture, you may find it difficult to walk, do your daily tasks, feel a lot of pain when sitting and getting up from a chair. Therefore, hip replacement surgery is ideal, as it not only provides pain relief but can also increase your mobility so that you can continue to enjoy the everyday activities that you love so much.
Our orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana, at Health & Wellness Bazaar, uses the most advanced and innovative procedures to perform these hip to ensure extraordinary results. In fact, these are frequently performed in patients who have osteoarthritis, as well as other types of hip diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
- Knee replacement. – If your knee has received some damage due to an injury or arthritis, you may find it difficult to perform simple activities such as taking the stairs, walking, sitting down, or sitting up. Hence, a knee replacement might be perfect for you. Knee surgery replacement consists of replacing the damaged or diseased joint surfaces of the knees with moldable metal and plastic components that facilitate the knee joint’s continuous movement.
Additionally, our orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana will perform four basic steps for a knee replacement procedure. First, he prepares the bone and will remove the damaged cartilage surfaces. Then, he places metal implants supplanting the cartilage and the extracted bone. Finally, the kneecap is resurfaced, reshaped (if needed), and repaired, followed by inserting a medical plastic spacer between the metals, causing the knee to slide smoothly. In about four to eight weeks, patients can return to their daily activities.
- Carpal tunnel release surgery. This surgery is recommended when patients feel significant numbness and pain in their hands with difficulty moving muscles and fingers. This surgery may be recommended to prevent joint damage and irreversible damage. There are two surgical techniques used in this surgery: open or endoscopic; both have the same purpose of relieving pressure on the nerve while cutting the ligament that forms the tunnel roof, reducing pressure on the median nerve.
With this in mind, your surgeon will discuss with you which surgical technique is best for you according to your needs and particular issues that must be addressed. Discectomy. – Also known as spinal surgery. In the past, large incisions were made that resulted in long recovery periods and painful rehabilitations. However, advances in technology have made discectomy safer and more reliable in Mexico. Thanks to endoscopy surgery, spinal surgery has 95% effectiveness, eliminating various forms of pain, including the sciatic.
Spinal disc surgery. – This procedure is performed in patients with a lumbar disc herniation. In this surgery, a specialist will remove parts of the herniated disc to relieve pressure on the spine. Our expert surgeons combine regenerative medicine with endoscopic discectomy to achieve phenomenal results. Besides, the damaged tissue will be corrected, improving recovery with more prolonged and quicker results. This approach eliminates pain and targets the cause of the problem.
