Orthopedics and Traumatology

“Our recognition to the one who dedicates its life to give movement to the life of others .”

Friedrich Hebbel

This specialty studies, diagnoses, and treats injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, joints, muscles, and other types of connective tissue involved with movement.

It is prevalent to treat injuries derived from accidents such as blows, fractures, or dislocations within this specialty. However, there are also congenital and developmental conditions that can affect the musculoskeletal system.

Orthopedics and Traumatology is a surgical specialty that corrects or alleviates any damage to the body. It works in an integral way to generate non-surgical treatments, especially if the injury or the condition does not warrant it. This specialty is supported significantly with Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.
