Ankle

The talocrural region (ankle) is made up of three distal joints – with the tibia, fibula and talus. Three main sensory nerves (saphenous, superficial peroneal, and sural) and four tendons (anterior, posteromedial, posterolateral and posterior) run through this joint. Besides this, it is made up of different ligaments: structures of dense connective tissue whose function is to join bone to bone; and synovial folds that allow the synovial membrane to slide over the joint surface.

The Arthroscopic Surgery Unit has a team of specialist surgeons to attend to patients with articular (joint) and periarticular problems. It also has a team of nurses and physiotherapists responsible for reducing recovery times which monitors and supervises patients at all times.

The UCA is a pioneer in the biological treatment of arthrosis injuries using Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF®-Endoret®) Technology.
