For patients suffering from strong back pain and who already had surgery but there is still pain keeping them from their daily activities or are looking for spine surgery or back treatment to help them move freely, the new Wellex spinal implant is the best solution for you.

The procedure is a minimally invasive and non-destructive surgery, where doctors make a small 1.96-inch incision and separate the tissues, so they have direct access to the bone without having to cut skin, muscle, or bone. The Wellex spinal implant is placed between the vertebras relieving patients from the pain.

The Wellex Implant is dynamic, allowing the patients to move naturally and regain the active lifestyle they had lost. After a week, they will be able to do their daily activities just like they did before they started suffering from back pain.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgical Techniques belong to a group of highly specialized procedures that focus on preserving healthy anatomical structures without damaging surrounding tissue while maintaining most of the muscle and ligamentous attachments intact. In some cases, surgeons need to use a needle or tube-type endoscope (endoscopic spine surgery) to illuminate and visualize the spinal lesion. A display amplifies the diseased part of the disc and the surgeon performs the treatment with specialized tools such as lasers, radio frequency, and other neurosurgical instruments.

ACL Repair Surgery
(Anterior Cruciate Ligament)

Surgery Price Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

The knee is formed by the femur, tibia, and patella. The femur and tibia are connected by 4 different ligaments: MCL, LCL, PCL, and ACL. They are in charge of keeping the knee joint together.

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is in the center and diagonally in the knee joint, connecting the femur (thigh bone) to the tibia (shin bone).

 

The ACL has the following functions:

  • Stabilize the knee.

  • Prevents the tibia from sliding out into the femur.

ACL Repair Surgery 

Candidates for an ACL Repair Surgery:

  • Patients older than 18 years old, who play the following high-risk sports: basketball, football, skiing, soccer, tennis, volleyball, and gymnastics.

  • Patients older than 18 years old with jobs that involve pivoting or heavy manual work.

  • Women in sports are more propensity to injury because of their physical conditioning and muscular strength.

Causes of an ACL tear:

  • Bad landings.

  • Slowing down while walking and abruptly changing direction.

  • Harsh and sudden movements.

  • Sidestepping maneuvers.

ACL Repair Surgery

Symptoms of an Acute Cruciate Ligament Tear:

  • Inflammation.

  • Pain.

  • Lost range of motion.

  • Tenderness in the knee joint.

  • Discomfort while walking.

Rapid Access Medical Tourism team of surgeons has treated hundreds of ACL injuries and performs ACL surgery as a regular component of his work as the team doctor for professional soccer and baseball teams.

Meniscus Repair Surgery

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

The meniscus cartilage has a very important role in the knee joint, in most cases, all the pressure of the patient's weight is held in this cartilage. If there is any type of damage to the meniscus tissue the pressure goes to the articular cartilage starting to cause degenerative changes in the entire joint.

Our patients experienced a meniscus tear, and feel pain and swelling in the knee joint, making it worse when they practice sports or physical activities.

Meniscus Repair Surgery

Candidates for Meniscus Repair Surgery:

A meniscus tear can be considered a minimal injury treated by non-surgical treatments. However, patients consider surgery in the following cases:

  • The patient wants to keep an active lifestyle.

  • Patients want to remain playing sports.

  • Patients have a tear is in the periphery.

  • The patient's tissue is good and can take the surgery.

  • Patients older than 60 years old, whose meniscus cartilage weakened with age.

Meniscus Repair Surgery

Orthopedic Surgery Center of Excellence

A meniscus tear can be more serious when the torn fragments get caught in the knee joint, making the knee stop functioning and the patient not being able to use it.

 

In other cases, patients have a meniscus tear and an injured ACL or MCL, which are ligaments that hold the knee joint together.

Rapid Access Medical Tourism team of surgeons has treated many patients with meniscus problems and performs this surgery as a regular component of their work.

Hip Resurfacing Surgery

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

Hip Resurfacing Surgery

Hip Replacement vs. Hip Resurfacing

In traditional hip replacement surgery, a significant amount of healthy and damaged bone is removed and replaced with a prosthetic bone. Our surgeons perform hip resurfacing, a technique that involves the removal of less healthy bone; we only replace the damaged area.

The type of hip resurfacing procedure that a patient receives and how long it is likely to last is largely dependent on the type of prosthesis used and the age of the patient. The cost of joint replacement procedures in America reflects the quality of joints used, with hip resurfacing costing around £50,000.

 

Hip Resurfacing

Hip Resurfacing Post-Op Care

Our post-operative care is second-to-none. Our team of Doctors stresses that we always keep in touch with patients by phone or email – it is important to make sure that they are recovering well, with minimum pain, and gaining the mobility and flexibility they have not had for so long.

If you would like to speak to a doctor about whether hip arthroscopy would be the best treatment for you then contact us today by using the Book an Appointment bottom of the top of the page.

Hip Replacement Surgery in Mexico (Hip Arthroplasty)

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

Hip replacement surgery or hip arthroplasty is done by

Rapid Access Medical Tourism is one of the most highly regarded and most recognized orthopedic teams of surgeons in Mexico, in this procedure, dead cartilage and bone of the hip joint are surgically removed and replaced with artificial materials.

 

The hip joint is a ball and socket joint, with the socket being comprised of a cup-shaped bone of the pelvis called the acetabulum. In the total hip replacement surgery, the acetabulum is replaced by a prosthetic and the partial hip replacement replaces only the femoral head.

Hip Replacement Surgery Specialist

Our certified orthopedic surgeons specialized in hip replacement

  • Total Hip Replacement (THR) – In this procedure the femoral head (the ball) of the damaged hip joint is replaced along with the acetabulum (the socket) is replaced with a prosthetic

  • Partial Hip Replacement (Hemiarthroplasty) – In this procedure, only the femoral head (the ball) of the damaged hip joint is replaced. The acetabulum (the socket) is not replaced.

Hip Replacement Surgery Conditions

Hip Replacement Surgery can be caused by different reasons

There are many injuries and conditions that can cause a person to need a hip replacement, some common issues include:

For partial hip replacement surgery:

  • Broken and fractured hips

  • Traumatic hip injury

For total hip replacement surgery:

  • Degenerative Arthritis in the hip joints

Spinal Fusion Surgery

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

Spinal fusion surgery stops the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which decreases pain from the joint.

There are various techniques for spinal fusion surgery, and all use a bone graft to add to an area of the spine, creating a biological response that makes the bone graft grow between the two vertebral segments and fuse together, stopping any movement at that segment.

Spinal Fusion Surgery

Neurology Center of Excellence

Patients with the following diseases could be candidates for spinal fusion surgery:

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Isthmic, degenerative, or post-laminectomy spondylolisthesis.

Other conditions that may be treated by spinal fusion surgery include a weak or unstable spine (caused by infections or tumors), fractures, scoliosis, or deformity. This is if abnormal and excessive movement at a vertebral segment causes severe pain and an inability to function normally.

Lumbar Dynamic Stabilization Surgery

Our price Varies But Compared to the USA and Canada, doing it in Mexico is 40 to 60% Cheaper

Lumbar Dynamic Stabilization is a relatively new treatment for low back pain that represents an exciting advance in spine surgery. With low back pain affecting up to 80% of people in North America today, spinal fusion surgery has become more popular than ever: More than 200,000 surgeries are performed annually, while pain management for low back pain represents a segment of the healthcare industry worth over $100 billion.

Dynamic stabilization costs far less than spinal fusion surgery, with typical savings over traditional spine surgery amounting to $50,000 and more.

Dynamic stabilization/soft stabilization uses flexible materials to stabilize the affected lumbar region while preserving the natural anatomy of the spine. It is intended to alter the load-bearing pattern of the spine’s motion segment and to control any abnormal motion while leaving the affected spinal segment mobile.

 

The idea behind stabilization is that controlling abnormal motions while supporting more physiologic load transmission may relieve the pain associated with degenerative disk disease and prevent further degeneration of adjacent segments of the spine. Once normal motion and load transmission can be achieved, a patient’s damaged disc may even repair itself.
