Ultrasound sports medicine According to experts in traumatology , ultrasound is revolutionizing sports medicine. There are many diseases that benefit from this technique to achieve more effective and minimally invasive results.

The application of treatments (from conventional to biological therapies) to tendinopathies, muscle injuries , sports injuries , to the nearest 1 mm ensure higher success rates.

There are many operations that have benefited from this new technique because it does not require open surgery and so avoid unnecessary risks. Some operations with excellent results with ecoguide ultramínimamente invasive surgery are: carpal tunnel syndrome, spring fingers, the plantar fasciitis , the epicondylitis , the lengthening of twins , the row syndrome , Morton's neuroma, chronic tendinopathy the Achilles tendon or the patellar , the paratendinosis or tarsal canal syndrome .

Others are chronic compartment syndrome of the forearm or leg, the scar syndromes in athletes, Dupuytren's disease, the syndrome of intersection , the arthrofibrosis fingers, the Achilles tendon sutures or posterior tibial tendon, the disease Haglund , percutaneous foot surgery, the De-Quervain syndrome , or release the patellar wing. Many miotenotomías performed in the treatment of spasticity in pediatric orthopedics can be performed with ultrasound-guided surgery with minimal incisions, maximum safety, avoiding multiple scars, plasters and slow recoveries of conventional processes.

With ultrasound, some injuries can avoid arthroscopic surgery which is invasive and carries more risk-as is the case with shoulder calcifications, always depending on the size and degree of structure and calcification or biceps tenotomy.

Ultrasound Institute in Avanfi

In the Avanfi Institute we are pioneers in the use of minimally invasive techniques guided by ultrasound.

Seen the results of ultrasound in sports medicine, the team has created and directs Avanfi Unit Ultramínimamente Invasive Surgery Hospital Beata Maria Ana of Madrid, together with the Unit hip and knee replacements and prosthetic. We have also created the Spanish Association of Surgery ecoguide to promote and encourage the learning of these techniques and there is a real line continuing education , something nonexistent in the world to date.

In Avanfi we not believe that progress is real if it can be passed and implemented. We are convinced that many prestigious professionals in our country and around the world, will be open and willing to make available to his patients this new form of more effective surgical approach, with less risk, which is performed on an outpatient basis and most cases prevents sick leave.
