Orthopedic surgery is the treatment procedure performed on the musculoskeletal system that a person undergoes after suffering from an injury or various conditions. The musculoskeletal system includes adjacent tissues such as muscles (which protect and provide movement of joints, and bones), ligaments (which join the bones), and tendons (which connect the muscles to bones). Additionally, the musculoskeletal system also comprises of bones and joints. Even though many doctors attend to different convalescent cases that require different approaches concerning therapy, there are some orthopedic procedures that are common in many cases. These are:
A person can undergo a spine surgery due to many different problems. One of the problems is intense back pains leading to a back surgery. Spinal fusion is one of the most common types of back surgery. While performing the back surgery, the surgeon will link spinal bones (vertebrae) together. Spinal Fusion limits stretching of the nerves. Besides, this procedure also restricts the movement between the spinal bones.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
ACL as it is commonly known is the primary knee stabilizing agent. The ligament can get fractured when an individual either associates himself/herself in sporting activities or twists his/her knee the wrong way. Due to the fractured ligament, Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction surgery will be conducted on the patient’s knee. During this therapy, the surgeon will remove the fractured ligament and replace it with another one to make a new Anterior Cruciate Ligament. The replacement tissue may either come from the patient, or an organ donor. Also, the new ACL will be linked to the bones using screws or other implements to hold it in place.
