What happens during an orthopedic examination?

Your medical history will be taken regarding your earlier musculoskeletal disorders, surgeries, accidents (fractures, pulled muscles, sprains) and information regarding your life style (sport activities, work conditions).

The examination will include:

  • examination of the soles of your feet with a podoscope (flat feet)
  • gait
  • posture
  • structural and functional examination of the chest and spine
  • sensory examination of the lower extremities
  • sensory examination of the upper extremities
  • deep reflexes
  • abnormal reflexes
  • structural and functional examination of the joints, deformities
  • ROM of major joints (shoulder, hip, knee and ankles)
  • lower extremity axis and foot deformities
  • targeted examination of complaints or possible disorders mentioned in medical history (most often spine and ankle problem areas)
  • X-rays of bones and/or joints necessary for clinical diagnosis.

Why choose the Buda Health Center?

The Patient-Doctor relationship is based on trust, the determining factor in a treatment's success or failure. We feel that our doctors have earned this trust through their professionalism, knowledge, experience and know-how. The level of care is further guaranteed since many of our leading physicians have gained renown and are respected in their field of specialty.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE. A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
