ORTHO & JOINT SURGERY
Several conditions can cause joint pain and disability whether temporary or permanent. Most damage is caused either by arthritis or fracture to the articular cartilage, due to physical activities.
Hip and knee replacements are the most commonly performed joint replacements, but replacement surgery can be performed on other joints, as well, including the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow.
An Orthopaedic surgeon confirms the need for surgery after checking the patient’s medical history and performs surgical procedures to immobilize fractures by using corrective devices such as braces, pins, casts, and splints. The surgeon and determines which instruments and method of surgery will be most successful in achieving the desired outcome. An orthopaedic then replace the damaged joint with a metal, a plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis helps in the movement of a joint normally.
