The Hospital of Orthopaedics uses new bioabsorbable implants that support bone or soft tissue healing and strengthening and finally disappear when no more needed.
Minimal stress and faster healing have always been the standards of orthopaedic surgery. Now, thanks to advances in material sciences, it is possible to get a step further. One can use bioabsorbable implants and screws that are inserted into patient’s body using minimally invasive techniques. Their goal is to provide support and fix damaged parts of the body. Because our bodies can so effectively rebuild themselves, they need only temporary support and bioabsorbable implants are the perfect solution.
Since bioasorbable implants are always more costly than traditional technologies, it is important to ask the medical professional of the availability and recommendation of absorbable components for each specific case.
The Hospital of Orthopaedics provides full range of orthopaedic services including Major Joint Replacement (Ankle, Hip, Knee, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist), Spinal Surgery Reconstructive Surgery and treatment of Sports Injuries.
