Orthopaedics and Traumatology is concerned with muscle, bone or joint diseases of the musculoskeletal system, whether degenerative, traumatic, acute, chronic or recurrent. It also focuses on the prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and research of congenital or acquired disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system from infancy to old age.

Although surgery is not usually required as treatment in this area, there are occasions when it is the only therapeutic alternative. The second half of the twentieth century not only saw advances in anaesthetic techniques, but also huge strides forwards in the development of implants, fracture fixation techniques, stabilisation of the spinal column and joint replacement, which today are extremely safe procedures that offer excellent results. The advances made in arthroscopic techniques have been truly extraordinary, enabling surgeons to see inside the joint and perform practically bloodless operations.

ITRT offers an expert team with a broad range of experience in all areas, together with the capability and the latest technology provided by Centro Médico Teknon.
