The Trauma Service of Clínica Vistahermosa, from the moment of its creation, made available the Hip Unit to all its patients, with the aim of providing a solution to all customers with problems in this joint. That way, our patients can be treated of those injuries resulting from accidents or sports, as well as resulting from degenerative problems and age.
The medical team in this Unit has extensive training and experience in the pathology of the hip, which makes it possible to provide full support ranging from a proper diagnosis, based on advanced imaging techniques and performed at Clinica Vistahermosa (magnetic resonance imaging , scanner, etc), to the best and most advanced treatment available today in the foremost centers.
Patients receive the individualized treatment which is best suits their problem. Initially they will be treated with conservative means, personalized rehabilitation programs with our physiotherapists, injections of growth factors and so on. Those who need it will undergo surgery using the latest techniques, from hip arthroscopy for the treatment of femoral-acetabular impingement or trochanteric tendinopathy, to prosthetic surgery for the treatment of hip osteoarthritis when the rest of previous measures have failed.
The implementation of these prostheses is performed according to the needs of each patient through a limited surgical approach (minimally invasive) using the best implants available for each case (from mini implants or prosthesis coating for the young patient to full or partial dentures of hip). Our team, working closely with the physiotherapists, is ready for a more advanced treatment of patients who have suffered a hip fracture. We have the technical and human resources that make it possible for us to be at the avant-garde of hip surgery.
