Orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana

A baby's first steps are some of the most special moments in life. But have you ever stopped to think about all that this simple action implies? It is not that simple, considering that our body impressively coordinates signals from the brain, nervous system, muscles, and bones simultaneously. Yes, the human body is wonderfully designed for the performance of activities and the enjoyment of life. Do you know how an orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana can contribute to maintaining your quality of life? We will explain it to you below.


What is an Orthopedic Surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating all those injuries or diseases that are related to the musculoskeletal system, that is, the joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, and bones throughout the body. These conditions can range from joint pain, ligament injuries, tears, wear and tear, and even broken bones, among others.

Our orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana is recognized for his extensive experience in caring for young and old patients who require major surgeries. A fundamental part of his job is to offer an accurate and timely diagnosis to avoid or prevent further complications. In addition to offering the best alternatives to restore the functions of the affected limb and regain mobility safely.

What is an Orthopedic Surgeon?

There are many reasons why a patient may require orthopedic surgery. These are eight of the most common surgical interventions performed by our exceptional orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana:

1. Knee replacement

Advanced arthritis or knee injuries may require knee replacement surgery. As a result of such conditions, patients may have constant pain and stiffness. Knee replacement surgery helps rebuild severely damaged parts using ligament grafts and metal pieces that support the knee's stability.

2. Hip replacement

Sometimes the hip can be seriously damaged by fractures, arthritis, or wear and tear that can cause severe pain, reduce mobility, or even make it impossible for an orthopedic patient to perform simple activities such as walking or sitting. Through this surgery, the damaged bone and cartilage are replaced with prosthetic materials.

3. Prosthesis replacement

Some experts consider that the useful life of a hip or knee replacement extends to 15 or 20 years. Although it is not so common, the implants can sometimes wear out, present infection in some components, move their position, or become unstable. Then, after a medical evaluation, the replacement can be determined if it's the recommended approach.

4. Knee reconstruction

This surgery is common when the knee tears, so it will not heal without surgery. An orthopedic surgeon, through an arthroscopy, is in charge of reconstructing the damage and thus stabilizing it so that it does not suffer more damage in the short and long term and preventing the need to perform a knee replacement in Mexico.

5. Spinal fusion

We could say that a spinal fusion is like welding the spine to correct problems of broken vertebrae, slips, or herniated discs. Through the use of bone grafts, the placement of metal rods and screws is held in a fixed position while the disc or bone is fused.

6. Hip arthroscopy

It is a less invasive procedure that aims to reverse the damage and prevent a major intervention, such as a hip replacement. A small incision is made through the soft tissues to treat the affected part. In general, those who perform this surgery through medical tourism in Mexico tend to have a much shorter and painless recovery.

7. Soft tissue repair

This type of surgery has to do with the repair of damaged muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Two of the most common interventions for this type of procedure are carpal tunnel release and rotator cuff repair, especially when an acute injury or tissue tear causes severe pain. That can be repaired by attaching the tendon or by sewing a new tendon to the tissue.

8. Endoscopic discectomy

It is an alternative that an orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana can use for those patients suffering from sciatica pain caused by compression of the spinal nerve from a herniated disc. Its great advantage is that it is minimally invasive through which parts of the herniated disc are removed to release pressure and damaged tissue is regenerated.

9. Open reduction and internal fixation

This surgery is used to repair broken bones. It is generally divided into two phases. The first is to put the broken bone back in place. And later, a fixing element such as screws, bars, rods, plates, among others, is placed.

Advantages of Orthopedic Surgery in Tijuana

When it comes to surgeries, there are two ways to perform them: unforeseen or planned. These first, logically, are the result of unexpected events such as traffic accidents, sports, or a fall, so they are treated urgently, and therefore it can be challenging to choose the best place or surgeon.

On the other hand, planned surgeries are those in which the patient has suffered pain, wear and tear or other chronic discomforts for some time. This situation can be advantageous when making a timely plan on how and when to treat it, as well as informing the surgeon about your condition so he can describe to you everything that your surgery will entail.

A common concern is wanting to know if rehabilitation from orthopedic surgery is painful, but many are surprised to learn of the options available. Currently, many people choose to be cared for through medical tourism in Tijuana since it offers you incredible comforts and the opportunity to choose the place, choose a trusted surgeon, and even plan how you want to carry out your recovery, in addition to reducing costs significantly. Plus, you can organize your vacation and itinerary according to the date of your surgery and the postoperative period.
