Orthopedic surgery has become commonplace in today’s athletic world where we are told to push harder and achieve strengths many of our bodies are not capable of obtaining. Arthritis is another cause for orthopedic surgery. Everyone suffers or will suffer the wear and tear arthritis puts on our joints, from knees to hips, arthritis creates pain, and limited use of many joints in hands, shoulders, hips and knees. In many cases, joint replacements have extended movement to limbs instead of forcing people into wheelchairs and limiting their lifestyle.
Carpal Tunnel surgery has moved up the list of orthopedic operations and has progressed to tremendous strides in repairing damaged joints and nerves, alleviating pain in joints that are overworked and overused. Another thing orthopedic surgery has done is corrective spinal surgery, repair of congenital disabilities in children, allowing babies and children to enjoy the benefits of orthopedic science. Repairing joints, spinal defects, and other bone deformities enhance the lives of people whose lives have limited movement because of illness, injury, and birth defects.
The brilliant orthopedic surgeons today have the advantage of using nonsurgical approaches to correcting problems and solving difficulties in movement. Orthopedic surgeons not only do replacement surgery but perform ligament repair and replacement.
