Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery - An Overview
Orthopaedics is a medical speciality that deals with the musculoskeletal system. Muscles and bones, as well as joints, ligaments, and tendons, make up this system.
An orthopaedic surgeon treats a variety of musculoskeletal ailments, including sports injuries, joint discomfort, and back problems, with both surgical and nonsurgical treatments.
What types of procedures may orthopaedic doctors perform?
The sections below look at some of the surgical procedures that an orthopaedic surgeon might conduct.
Joint Replacement A total joint replacement, also known as arthroplasty, is a surgical operation that involves replacing a damaged joint with a prosthesis made of metal and plastic.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive method that diagnoses joint diseases using an arthroscope. The surgeon can utilise a range of small, thin devices to correct various problems by making small extra incisions.
The most common type of orthopaedic surgery performed in the Horizon Hospital is arthroscopic knee surgery. The meniscus, ACL, and rotator cuff tears are all frequent joint ailments that an orthopedist can treat with arthroscopic surgery.
An orthopaedic surgeon may be required to undertake surgery to fix fractures. They can utilise a variety of various types of implants to support the bone including rods, plates, screws, and wires.
Bone grafting. An orthopaedic surgeon uses bone from another body part to mend and strengthen sick or damaged bones in bone grafting surgery.
