Common Orthopaedic Procedures
Orthopedic surgeons can perform a wide variety of procedures, depending on the nature of your condition. These procedures may be used to manage disease, repair fractures or correct deformities.
Some of the most common procedures include:
- Arthroscopy. This procedure uses specialized equipment, including cameras to look into a joint and address any problems that might be found.
- Fusion. Bones that are damaged or causing discomfort can be fused together using an internal device, like a metal rod or a bone graft.
- Internal fixation. This procedure helps to treat broken bones by putting the broken pieces back together using screws, pins or metal plates.
- Joint replacement. An artificial joint, known as a prosthesis, will be used to replace a joint that has been damaged due to injury or a disease such as arthritis.
- Osteotomy. This can be used to cut and reposition the bones to correct a deformity.
- Soft tissue repair. The soft connective tissue that has been torn, including ligaments or tendons, may be mended during a surgical procedure.
The specifics of these procedures and their application to your treatment will vary based on the nature and severity of the injury. Your doctor will be able to go over any specifics that may demand attention in this regard.
