    What is it?

    Our Large Joints Unit: Hip and Knee offers a specialist service in hip and knee joint replacements and any possible complications.

    We are pioneers in applying minimally invasive techniques and in using surgical materials for treating hip and knee osteoarthritis through reconstructive surgery.


    Led by

    Our unit is headed up by Dr. Rafael Llopis, a specialist in Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology and a Fellow in Knee Surgery (knee replacement revision), having trained at The Hospital for Special Surgery (New York) and Mayo Clinic (Rochester) in the United States.

    His professional career is notable for his specific training in large joints, hips and knees, a field he has focused on for over 20 years.

    He is a pioneer in minimally invasive hip surgery, surface surgery and use of new materials for surgical treatment of hip and knee arthrosis by joint replacement.


    Distinct features

    Our Unit's focus on large joints defines our distinct, highly specialized character, providing maximum professional experience and expertise which is always based on scientific knowledge.

    Our approach to hip and knee arthrosis surgery involves replacing these joints with new materials and preserving the existing bone as much as possible, replacing only the joint surface (resurfacing).

    This type of minimally invasive techniques means the joints can be largely preserved, thus giving the patient maximum reassurance and ensuring a successful conclusión.

    What does it diagnose? What does it treat?

    What does it diagnose? What does it treat?

    Our Unit is divided into two main areas:


    • Arthritic hip
    • Degenerative processes in adults.
    • Femoral head necrosis.
    • Hip dysplasia in young patients.
    • Inflammatory processes that lead to hip arthrosis.

    The techniques we use for the hip are:

    • Primary surgery using minimally invasive techniques.
    • Conservative joint surgery using surface prostheses in young patients (under 65s).
    • Joint replacement surgery for deterioration, loosening or infection.
    • Use of new biomaterials to prolong the longevity of implants.



    • Arthrosic degenerative processes of the knee.
    • Post-traumatic sequelae.
    • Joint affectation after knee-sparing surgery (meniscectomy).

    The techniques applied in this case are:

    • Primary osteoarthritis surgery using cutting-edge biomaterials.
    • Single-compartment osteoarthritis conservative surgery using unicondylar prostheses.
    • Revision surgery.
    • Joint replacement surgery for loosening or infection.
