Joint replacements programs

Aligned with our organization’s mission, La Clínica El Rosario, through its joint replacement program (hip, knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow), aims at improving the quality of life of our users and get them back to health through a healthcare service that is comprehensive, kind, safe and apart from others. It relies on high quality human resources and dedicated management that guarantees a concrete benefit to the community, as it sustains itself financially through time.

Joint replacement or joint prosthesis involves a surgery were a particular human joint that has deteriorated or fractured is replaced by an artificial one that is made of metal and plastic. This replacement largely benefits its recipient because it alleviates the pain caused by that joint and allows it to properly function again. This kind of operation doesn’t manifest itself externally (apart from leaving a small scar).

Joint replacement is a surgery with very high success rates, but it is instrumental to that success that the patient carefully follows instructions and try to avoid certain postures, movements or activities that put the procedure in risk of failing. The final results depend on a lot of factors, and patient behavior in the post-op process is one of the most important ones.

Instructional video for patients in the joint replacement program

“Joint replacement requires a rehabilitation plan that is safe and sound. Said plan should start even before the surgery takes place and must continue for the rest of the patient’s life. It requires the adoption of safe movements, postures and positionings. You ought to remember that a prothesis or joint replacement is not like a normal joint”.
