If you happen to have musculoskeletal problems, you will have to visit an orthopedic surgeon.The bones, joints, soft tissues, muscles, ligaments and tendons, all together form the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons normally have a side area of expertise.This, therefore, means that there are different orthopedic surgery procedures, and here are just a few common ones.
- Joint replacement
People in end-stage arthritis usually experience a lot of pain. To ease joint pain and increase motion, joint replacement procedure is used. The hip and knee are the mostly replaced. However, Ankles too are replaced using the same process, but there are only a few cases.
- Shoulder joint replacement
As the name suggests, this practice is carried out on the shoulders, which are also the most used among the human body parts. If you have shoulder pains and injuries, then this procedure may be required of you. It not only relieves shoulder pain but also increases motion.
- Spine surgery
If you suffer from back pain, this may be the recommended procedure for you. If you happen to have either spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, myofascial pain syndrome or many spinal conditions that may develop due to aging, then doing a spinal surgery would be the solution.
