Our Advanced Facility
When you choose CORE Medical & Surgery Center, you gain access to a state-of-the-art facility including surgical suites, well-equipped patient rooms, a gym, pharmacy and even an on-site restaurant.
We are the only medical center in Baja California that works with the ROSA Robot (robotic surgical assistant.) This is a new system, which has a robotic arm and sophisticated software allowing a continuous analysis of the data and guidance for the surgeon during the placement of joint prostheses.
This technology makes it possible to adapt the prostheses to the patient’s needs. It also helps doctor and patient plan the intervention with 3D images that can be shared on mobile phones and tablets.
The inclusion of this technology represents another step towards the adoption of robotic surgery in trauma and by incorporating this new system, great advances are being made in patient care. It offers the following advantages:
- Optimizes surgery times
- Requires only a small incision
- Decreases tissue damage
- Preserves bone and surrounding tissue
- Decreases bleeding during surgery
- Improves accuracy, precision and consistency of the surgery
- Delivers higher patient satisfaction, better clinical results, and higher efficiency
- Facilitates surgical planning adapted to the anatomy of each patient.
- Limits pain and helps to achieve a faster recovery
Medical treatment is the use of non-surgical methods for pain relief, and healing of traumatic injuries. Medical treatment is carried out with the use of medications taken, smeared, or injected, in addition to immobilization with the use of plaster, fiberglass or orthopedic devices. One of the options for the management of joint pain is the beginning of pharmacological treatment, with medications taken, the use of gel or creams on the skin, or infiltration of medications into a joint, with the aim of removing pain and improving limb functionality.
Minimally Invasive Surgical Treatments
Our orthopedic surgeons perform various minimally invasive procedures with the aim of a faster recovery for patients. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery where sports, acute or chronic joint injuries are diagnosed and treated. The orthopedic surgeon specializes in performing arthroscopic surgery with the use of state-of-the-art technology in areas including the knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, wrist and ankle.
Joint replacement surgery is intended for patients with advanced joint injuries due to wear and tear or trauma, who suffer from chronic pain, and limitation in activities of daily living. Joint replacement allows patients to regain movement, relieve pain, and improve quality of life. The prostheses are designed to start a quick rehabilitation safely, for a return to normal activities.
Physical Therapy and Early Rehabilitation
Part of orthopedic treatment consists of an early physical rehabilitation, carried out in conjunction with therapists, physical therapists and occupational rehabilitators. Physical therapy is focused on injury prevention, pain management, and functional recovery. It is essential for a recovery of normal activity and sports. For sports injuries, and patients who receive surgical treatment, it is essential that they undergo physical therapy sessions so that they can return to physical activities.
For the comprehensive care of patients, the orthopedist performs a detailed clinical examination of the areas with pain, and if necessary, to rely on auxiliary studies to reach a definitive diagnosis. The main diagnostic tools used by our orthopedics are:
- X-rays and tomographies: Studies requested mainly to observe bone injuries or joint wear.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): Imaging to observe soft tissue injuries such as muscles, ligaments, tendons, articular cartilage, etc.
- Bone densitometry: A test to measure bone density and diagnose osteopenia or osteoporosis.
- Electromyography: A test detecting nerve injuries in the thoracic or pelvic limbs.
As a leading orthopedic practice in Mexico, our team of dedicated, board-certified doctors put our patients’ needs first by developing custom treatment plans that include conservative and surgical treatment options when nonsurgical treatments don’t relieve the pain. We are committed to relieving your symptoms and restoring your comfort, function, and mobility. We will be happy to serve you.
