Orthopedic surgery deals with treatment procedure on the musculoskeletal system in case of injury, accident or a hazard that result in bone or spine injury. The musculoskeletal system comprises of bone, joints, ligament, tendons that connect muscle to the bones and the soft tissues which protect and allow movements of the bones and the joints. The most common orthopedic surgery procedures are the knee replacement, hip, joint and shoulder replacement carpal tunnel release and spine surgery.
New technology has made orthopedic surgery much easier with procedures being done through open surgery or arthroscopically using an arthroscopy. This piece covers three common procedures.
The first one is bone fracture fixation, which is performed when broken pieces of bones need re-positioning using pins or screws. Joint replacement is another common procedure, and it is performed on damaged joints with a prosthesis as a replacement. Thanks to spine fusion, which is another example of a common orthopedic procedure, vertebrates can have their injured spine bones fused together. Apparently, orthopedic surgery has helped give victims of bone and spine injury and accidents a normal life all over again.
