Application for Treatment

Arthroplasty - kind of surgery to restore joint function in which there is a partial replacement of the damaged joint with an implant . Unlike arthroplasty or arthrodesis of replacement that she considered sparing surgery, as in most cases there is preservation of one or both of the articular surfaces, allowing movement in the joint.

- Ankylosis 
- Deforming arthrosis
