According to the NHS (National Health Service, UK), Orthopaedic Surgery is a branch of medical science that deals with medical issues associated with the musculoskeletal system of the body. Anyone suffering from a trauma injury, deformity of the limbs or long-term conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis requires the services of a qualified orthopedic surgeon.
Joint Replacement Surgery
Surgery to replace the joints is one of the common orthopedic procedures. Joints are susceptible to deformities caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, injuries, and trauma. When a joint is extremely damaged, the surgeon has no other option other than replacing it with joinery made from either plastic, ceramic or metal.
This procedure is very common among orthopedic surgeons. It is minimally invasive and involves the insertion of Arthroscopes into the joints to access the damage done to the joints. It is majorly a diagnostic procedure.
