Orthopedic Surgery and orthopedic procedures may be performed if a patient has any type of issues dealing with the skeleton and muscles in the body. The four most common orthopedic surgeries are ACL Reconstruction, Spine Surgery, Total Joint Replacement and Total Shoulder Replacement.
Total joint replacement surgery is very common among patients suffering from severe arthritis. These patients typically are looking to ease their pain and desire a greater range of motion. Surgeons locate the affected areas of the joint and then replace the damaged area with plastic or metal parts. These parts mimic the natural shape and surface of the affected joint.
Spine surgery is an option for those who suffer from chronic back pain. There are several procedures to treat this, including Spinal Fusion, Foraminotomy, Laminotomy, Laminectomy, and Disc Replacement. Spinal Fusion procedures join the vertebrae together, which decreases the range of motion of the spinal bones and restricts the elasticity of the nerves. With Disc Replacement surgery, the damaged vertebrae are replaced with an artificial disc.
