Orthopedic surgery is one of the most important areas of operations targeting back pain, arthritic hips, knees, stiff neck muscles, sports injuries and many more musculoskeletal conditions. The physician is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, treatments and rehabilitation of injuries and in extreme cases, surgery. The musculoskeletal system includes bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. While most of the surgeons are familiar with most of the areas of the musculoskeletal system, most will specialize in specific fields including trauma, pediatrics, reconstructive surgery, oncology and sports medicine.
The most common surgeries include Arthroscopy which involves the use of special cameras and equipment to diagnose and treat joint complications, fusion which involves grafting bones and internal devices such as metal rods with the bones. Others include Internal Fixation which means bringing together two broken bones and holding them into position using special metal plates, joint replacement with artificial ones and osteotomy which is all about correcting the deformity of bones and repositioning the same. The surgeries also involve soft tissue repairs such as tendons and ligaments.
