Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most popular procedures performed by Orthopedic Surgeons in Spain?

The most popular procedures performed by Orthopedic Surgeons in Spain are -

The ankle joint is made up of three bones - the lower end of the tibia, the fibula, and the talus. This surgery fuses the tibia and the talus, which ultimately closes the gap and helps in bringing down the pain and swelling. This surgery is mostly performed to treat ankle arthritis.
