• History

    In 1997, Dr. Eliseo Mora Sanchez arrived in Tijuana, B.C. after working for 15 years in Mexico City, La Piedad, Michoacan and León, Guanajuato.

    Soon after moving to Tijuana, Dr. Mora Sanchez identified a gap in healthcare quality and patient experience at big hospitals and institutions and decided to start his private practice where he could implement his vision – best quality care and a unique and enjoyable experience for his patients.

    Dr. Mora Sanchez pioneered the private healthcare sector in Tijuana when he opened Clinica de Rodilla y Hombro by combining a state of the art surgical center with a family oriented business culture and environment. After several years of growth, innovation and continuous improvement Clinica de Rodilla y Hombro expanded its medical and executive team and decided to offer the same quality service and patient experience to encompass all orthopaedic specialties and other pain management treatments. Additionally, because of the company’s forward looking approach and constant innovation in technology and quality processes, the executive team decided to revamp the corporate identity with a modern and fresh image. Baja Orthopaedic Institute (BajaOrtho) specializes in the latest surgical techniques for a range of medical specialties while ensuring a pleasant and enjoyable experience for our patients.
