Orthopedic procedures include conditions involving the skeletons and muscles in the human body. In some cases, orthopedic surgery is needed, and other times nonsurgical procedures are used to solve orthopedic issues.
There are many common orthopedic procedures today. However, some of the top most common orthopedic procedures include total joint replacement, total shoulder replacement, and spine surgery. With total joint replacement surgery, most patients are previously diagnosed with extreme arthritis pain, and thus, they seek relief from pain and an increase in movement. The damaged parts of the joint are replaced with naturally shaped plastic and metal surfaces to restore the movement of the knee and normal functionality. With total shoulder replacement, the procedure includes the replacement of the cartilage and bone’s parts that are damaged. It is replaced with a plastic or metal implant. And as a result, patients feel much better, and they will have great improvement in the range of motion. Lastly, spine surgery is done due to various problems, such as increasing back pain which negatively affects one’s daily life. Less pain occurs along with increased productivity, better physical fitness, and increased activity.
