Any recommendation for a traumatólogo in Santiago?

Hola my fellow forumites, anyone have a recommendation for a traumatólogo in Santiago? Especially for a knee injury.

no, but i would be interested too as I have a knee injury that needs a look.

15 year old ski injury that seems to be acting up with age, and was never looked at when it happened. probably too late to do anything about.

I've uploaded a list of English-speaking doctors in Santiago which has some knee specialists. https://filebin.net/xvi0hhgvnjv9tdp1

Thanks, any leads help. There is an old thread regarding MRIs and Clinica Indisa might be a possibility quality and price-wise.

You can give Jorge Cardona a call. He is Colombian but during his career, has worked in the US so must speak English. My wife is presently with him for arthritis problems with her shoulder and knees, which he is treating via stem cells. She sees him at Inbiormed.cl in Av Manquehue but if you google him, you’ll see he also attends in Vitacura. She is very happy with him, and he spends time explaining in detail what your problem is and treatment offered

I had my knee operated on by Marcelo Inturias in the Clinica Vespucio. Not my favorite clinic, but he did a great job.
