Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is the surgery that deals with any disorders of the locomotive system of the human body, including the muscular, osseous (bone-related) or joint components. Orthopedics treats the acute, chronic, traumatic and recurrent injuries in this system. Apart from the mechanical considerations, orthopedics also refers to the pathological, genetic, intrinsic, extrinsic and biomechanical factors implied in the system.

The services that Dr. Rios performs at his office or in the Star Medica Hospital in Merida, Mexico include:

  • Percutaneous foot surgery, including bunion surgery
  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Integrated management of sports injuries and problems
  • Arthroscopic surgery in shoulders, knees and ankles
  • Joint pain, and hip, knee, ankle and shoulder phrotesis
  • Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
  • Back pain, position and sciatic nerve problems
  • Spinal pain, postures and sciatica
  • Problems with walking and support in children and adults

Dr. Rios says,

"I treat my patients for everything they require with advanced techniques and great humanity. I invite you to send me an e-mail or call with any questions you may have regarding my services. Please also call to obtain any information you may need for any type of intervention or sickness you or anyone in your family has in my area of expertise."

Foot surgery for common foot problems has advanced greatly in recent years, and Dr. Rios has continued to educate himself on the latest techniques. He is able to offer minimally invasive and virtually non-painful surgeries for some of the most troubling foot and ankle problems, including the common and painful condition of hallux valgus, or bunions. Dr. Rios speaks and writes in both Spanish and English, and looks forward to hearing from you.

    My brother has a foot problem but he can not afford an operation in Canada.
    He will pass an IRM next week and he would like to know how to proceed for you to make an estimate of the cost of the operation.

    Ron, we don't know anyone in Chetumal. Merida is the medical center of this part of the world. If you want a recommendation from Dr. Rios Arjona, we suggest you email him directly.

  • Ron Elliott 6 years ago

    I need surgery for impingement causing sciatica. I cannot afford surgery in the US. Can you recommend someone in Chetumal for orthoscopic surgery. I can stay with friends there.

    Thank you

    Dr. Rios performed surgery on my foot just over a year ago. I am thrilled with the results. I had two previous surgeries (since childhood) and this was by far the most successful. There was virtually no pain after the surgery and I was sent home with very good pain control medication. Before the surgery I had trouble walking more than a block or two - I could do it but was in a lot of pain. My foot was getting worse and worse. Now I can walk as much as I want. I used to think I would be crippled before I was 60 and now I feel like there are no restrictions on my activity.

    Not only was the surgery successful, but Dr. Rios is very kind and is never rushed during an appointment. He answered my emails the same day and gave me the confidence to go ahead with the surgery. It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Rios. I would recommend him to everyone.
