Orthopaedics is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions and injuries related to the musculoskeletal system.
Fractures: A fracture is a broken bone that can be caused by trauma, overuse, or weakening of the bone due to osteoporosis.
Tendinitis: This is a condition that occurs when a tendon becomes inflamed and painful, often due to overuse or repetitive motions.
Rotator cuff tear: This is a common shoulder injury that occurs when one or more of the tendons in the rotator cuff are torn.
Herniated disc: This is a condition that occurs when a spinal disc is pushed out of place, leading to pain and numbness in the back and/or legs.
The most common joints that are replaced are the hip, knee, and shoulder, but joint replacement can also be done on other joints such as the ankle, wrist, and elbow.
Fracture repair is a surgical procedure that involves realigning and stabilizing a broken bone to allow it to heal properly.
Spinal surgery is a procedure that is performed to treat conditions affecting the spinal column, including the vertebrae, discs, spinal cord, and surrounding tissues.
Ligament reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is performed to repair or replace a torn or damaged ligament.
