That is why I stay updated with international studies on new orthopedic techniques and the most advanced procedures in orthopedics, always offering the best solutions to each of my patients in Panama.

I gladly share all the knowledge I acquire with students, colleagues, and the general public who attend the most important conferences in Panama.

Orthopedic surgeons help solve various types of elbow and shoulder injuries through treatment and therapies, including joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. They also address damage in the knee area, with athletes being the most affected by these conditions.

My career is based on the Hippocratic principle “primum non nocere,” which translates to ‘first, do no harm.’ Following this premise, the qualities that characterize me are:


First-rate attention

The human, close, and personal interaction with my patients allows me to accurately discover the cause of their injury, understand their problems, and provide efficient solutions, using scientific evidence as a tool to achieve this.


Scientific knowledge

My local training at the Rafael Hernández Hospital in Chiriquí and multiple specializations in prestigious training centers around the world serve as a guide in every step I take for the immediate care and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.


Extensive experience

After years of professional experience and hundreds of patients treated, I can say that I have enough technical expertise and skills to assist you in the best possible way, providing effective solutions to the ailments of your elbows, shoulders, or knees.


Orthopedics studies both the musculoskeletal system and the body’s ability to move, which encompasses many relevant parts, such as shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. However, orthopedic surgeons have the option to specialize directly in a specific area. In my case, I chose to focus on elbows, shoulders, knees and sports injuries.

These are the branches of orthopedics where I can assist you…

Elbow problems are more common than believed and include:

All of these conditions can be remedied if the appropriate techniques and treatments are employed at the right time. If you begin to notice discomfort causing pain in your elbow, make an appointment!

If you think shoulders are exempt from injuries, you’re mistaken! Many patients come to the clinic presenting mild, moderate, or acute cases of:

Rest assured that together we will find the ideal procedure to successfully manage any of these injuries in the shortest possible time.

Knees bear a significant portion of the body’s weight when standing, and even more so when pressure is exerted during physical activities. Therefore, they are always prone to developing structural discomfort in joints and ligaments. Here are the main related problems:

My recommendation is to undergo a comprehensive evaluation to prevent a more severe injury, with the goal of achieving the patient’s full recovery.

In this specialty, we cover the field of sports medicine, providing treatment for athletes who have suffered muscular or skeletal injuries, including:

In these cases, the priority is to repair the damage as quickly as possible while also reducing the athlete’s state of inactivity, allowing them to resume their sports activities within a short period of time.


This is one of the most discussed questions in the medical field. While it is true that both specialties involve the care of the human musculoskeletal system, there is something that will help you differentiate them. Traumatology patients are those who have experienced trauma or an accident resulting in a fracture. On the other hand, orthopedics deals with congenital pathologies, birth-related conditions, or difficulties naturally developed by an individual.


Orthopedics is the branch of medicine that encompasses the treatment of diseases, pathologies, and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, an orthopedic surgeon is responsible for everything related to muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

Typically, each orthopedic surgeon chooses the specific area in which they wish to specialize, such as ankles and feet, hands and wrists, shoulders, knees, elbows, hips, sports injuries, or the spine. However, we are all qualified to solve joint problems through surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Cual Es La Funcion De Un Ortopeda

As an orthopedic specialist with an extensive career in Panama, I can confirm that the most common bone problems are:

On the other hand, among the joint disorders that most affect the population are:

The study of orthopedics allows us to provide effective solutions to these and many other situations that can affect your health.


You should schedule an appointment with an orthopedic specialist if you experience any of these signs:

In many cases, a visit to the orthopedic specialist is recommended to evaluate bone healing after a fracture or sprain.


Before visiting the orthopedic specialist, identify and note down each of the discomforts you are experiencing. This way, the specialist can interpret the signs and determine the source of the pain and other symptoms that bother you.

If your case has been treated previously, remember to bring any medical records you have on hand. This will help compare the progression of the condition and explore additional alternatives to those provided in the past.

Every consultation requires a physical examination, so make sure to wear comfortable clothing and minimal accessories. This suggestion is particularly useful if we need to perform an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI of the affected area.

Did you know… orthopedic specialists rely on imaging tests to study the internal characteristics of the problem, confirm the diagnosis, and offer the appropriate treatment method for each patient? Imaging procedures are a crucial part of our work! Imaging procedures are a very important part of our work!
