Orthopedic surgery is a corrective procedure performed on the musculoskeletal system of an injured human body or a person with any other medical condition. The operation is conducted by a surgeon who specializes in orthopedic surgeries. Orthopedic surgeons undergo thorough training which enables them to perform their duties seamlessly.
Orthopedic surgeries target various parts of the body that include the joints, bones and the adjacent soft tissues, ligaments, and tendons. The most common orthopedic surgeries are performed on the knee, ankle, wrist, hip shoulder and the spine. The reason for that is because these body parts are mostly involved in movement and therefore at a higher risk of injuries.
According to Dr. Greg Finch, an Australian based orthopedic surgeon, a good orthopedic surgeon should be in a position to explain the whole procedure to their patients to help them ease their tension. Some of the top surgeries performed by Dr. Greg Finch include:
- Hip repair surgery: – it involves stabilizing of broken bones around the hip with screws, rods, nails, or plates. It is usually done on people who have fractured bones in which the bones need to be aligned properly. It helps to relieve the pain in the long run and also allows for smooth movement of the bones.
- Hip replacement surgery: it involves the replacement of a part or the whole hip joint with artificial parts.
