In this article, we will discuss the differences and main characteristics of the knee pads, both sports and those designed to prevent or treat injuries. Our knees are 'designed' to support the entire weight of the body, so when we are practicing any sport, it is one of the areas most likely to suffer an injury.

Sports injury is synonymous with a professional athlete right from the time they train under grueling conditions. These injuries can be healed through a combination of casting or bracing and physical therapy.

Hip replacements are primarily done when the levels of arthritis, any disease that causes the bone joints to die, injuries/fractures. That aching, painful and stiff hip can also reduce your quality of life. You can’t enjoy the activities you used to love, like a good golf game, a walk around the block or even playing with the grandkids, without constant pain.

In this blog post, we will try to answer general questions that may arise patients who are going to undergo knee surgery or their families. Complications after the prosthesis, how long a prosthesis lasts- are common questions.

We consult a traumatologist-orthopedist when we receive injuries or come up with complaints of pain in the joints and the spine. In this article, we will talk about diseases and problems of our musculoskeletal system. Why do our joints start to hurt? What help and treatment can you get in a hospital? What is endoprosthetics? How to choose the right shoes? What are orthopedic products?

The recovery of a knee intervention by arthroscopy is much faster than that of traditional surgery. However, it varies depending on which area has been operated and the method used by the specialist. Through knee arthroscopy, a minimally invasive technique, the broken menisci, crossed ligaments, synovial membrane, misalignment of the patella, broken cartilage in the joint, and other pathologies such as Baker's Cyst are intervened.

The hip operation has evolved a lot in recent years and is no longer a surgery too complicated. However, we must take into account certain care that prevents collateral damage. If a few years ago it was an intervention that doctors tried to postpone as long as possible, nowadays it is done quite naturally, and it is increasingly common to see people who have hip prostheses and lead a normal life.

Knee prostheses are classified according to how the affected bones are replaced, differentiating between total knee, unicompartmental or revision prosthesis. Here we will see the differences and how they are fixed to the bone.

The doctor has determined that the best option for my problem is the implantation of a hip prosthesis but, what types of prosthesis are there? In which cases are each of them indicated? How is it fixed to the bone? All these are common questions that are often asked by patients, in this post we will answer them.

Despite obtaining hopeful results, new biological therapies (stem cells, growth factors, chondrocyte implantation, among others) are not yet able to replace, shortly, replacement surgery as the treatment of choice for osteoarthritis of the advanced knee. The regenerative therapies could be the key to the future for the treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis (numerous studies and clinical trials are studying the use of stem cells, plasma rich in growth factors or washout of senescent cells of joints to slow down, stop, and even reverse the progression of osteoarthritis), but it has not yet been possible to optimize methods for the production of stem cells to generate sufficient numbers, with adequate longevity, and at affordable costs.
