The most commonly treated pathologies are: hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, fractures, rheumatic diseases and femoroacetabular impingement, among others. The main treatments used are: total hip prosthesis, hip prosthesis replacements and osteosynthesis, although in recent years arthroscopic techniques and minimally invasive surgery have advanced considerably and are also performed at Lenox. This unit is formed by Dr. Morales de Cano and Dr. Delgado López.
