The Clinica Universidad de Los Andes provides orthopedic services for numerous top members of Chile’s Olympic Team. The agreement solidifies a pact between the medical center and the Chilean Olympic Committee, naming the clinic as the official recovery site of Team Chile.

Chosen because of its medical team’s outstanding care for elite and professional athletes, the Clinica Universidad de los Andes will provide consultations, examinations, procedures, surgeries, and traumatological treatment.

The Clinic invests in state-of-the-art technology to make this possible, and it recently partnered with CurveBeam to furnish athletes with access to the LineUP CT imaging system, a bilateral, weight-bearing  solution that quickly images knees and lower extremities in 3D.

Leveraging technology, the Clinic’s care will center around a very personalized and humanized focus on the athlete/patient and his or her family, helping to streamline the medical care and recovery processes of Chile’s national athletes.

World karate gold medalist Rodrigo Rojas, water skiing gold medalist Rodrigo Toti Miranda, triathlete medalists Diego Moya and Macarena Salazar, judo medalist Tomas Briseno, as well as other prominent national athletes already seek care at this prestigious institution.
