In recent years, the field of orthopedics in Spain has achieved significant results and gained a sound reputation around the world due to scientific developments in the materials used to manufacture prostheses. For example, new prostheses for the hip and knee joints provide better and more stable joint fixity, thereby significantly reducing the recovery period and improving the quality of life for patients. Six weeks after surgery, such patients can return to their normal lives.
Orthopedic surgeons in Spain also have gained the trust and respect of their European colleagues.
The most common orthopedic procedures are the replacement of vertebrae (at a cost of 8,000 to 12,000 euros), hip replacements (from 12,500 euros), knee surgery with the installation of a prosthesis (from 6,000 to 8,000 euros), arthroscopy of the shoulder and joints (from 2,000 to 4,000 euros), and treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (from 1,000 to 2,000 euros). The cost of the initial consultation is about 115 euros and further consultations cost about 80 euros.
