Tumors in soft areas.
The presence of injuries and tumors of the cutaneous system, and skeletal muscle require a thorough study and a systematic, coordinate and efficient action, with the aim of offering each patient the best security and therapeutic possibilities available.
In the Vistahermosa Clinic the unit of Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery of Dr. José Aparicio, carries out an essential collaborative task with the rest of the surgical and medical teams. This task is focused on the restitution of the lost anatomy once the tumor is removed, as well as the prevention of injuries in noble structure ( cartilage, bone, vessel, nerves, etc.) on the face, trunk and limbs.
On the limbs, the functional restitution of the lost tissues also entails the substitution of damaged areas caused by trauma, previous surgical interventions, infectious process and burns.
Dr. Aparicio’s team is a professional team used to solve the most complex reconstructive cases. This allows us to offer you a wide range of surgical alternatives that go from the use of biological and biocompatible materials and products until the use of the patient’s own tissues and the displacement of complex tissues based on microsurgery techniques.
We resolve cases that go from trauma injuries,articular prosthesis expositions and materials of bone fixation, big damages after radical tumorectomies, post-operative muscle-tendinose injuries corrections,etc.
These surgical interventions of great importance, usually imply a long hospitalization (from 1 to 2 weeks) where we carry out a combined series of specific rehab therapies for each case.
Characteristics of the procedure:
Duration of the procedure
Between 6 – 8 hours
General and in many cases combined with area or local blockage
Long and depending on the complexity and the surgery ( between 2 and 4 weeks)
Return to work life
Variable depending on the case ( between 3 and 6 months)
Use of rehab systems, external fixations, special healing materials, pressotherapy, etc.
