Proper prosthetic surgery is the cornerstone for maintaining the welfare state.

The advancement of medicine and surgery in the last third of the twentieth century and early twenty - first century have achieved a significant increase in life expectancy and thus, the occurrence of a specific pathology of joint prostheses, currently managed by.

We are specialists in Traumatology and pioneers and leaders in prosthetic surgery in countries like England and the US. We have turning all our experience in our patients in Spain; this knowledge are the basis for the continued success of our joint replacement surgery.

Obviously, the latest minimally invasive techniques, biomaterials - art, modern prostheses tailored to each patient and appropriate to the sex of the same special prosthesis, achieve success and excellence we seek in our surgeries.

The fact of having implemented the first total knee replacement in Spain is indicative of the vast experience we have in the surgeries of the hip and knee, which are weight - bearing joints that are affected more often and that has certainly improved the quality of life of patients.

One of the axioms of Dr Clinic. Gilt is that "the prosthesis must survive the patient"; with him we stress that technical perfection, the choice of the appropriate prosthesis and use of biological materials, should ensure that the patient is operated once throughout his life, without reoperation that more and more complicated and dangerous.
