In case the musculoskeletal system undergoes any injury or even a particular condition, orthopedic surgery is conducted. The doctors performing the procedure undergo training on issues regarding the diagnosis, cure, and prevention of the disorders or disease of the joints, bones as well as the ligaments. Procedures are conducted in an attempt to bring the body back to shape. One of such procedures is the joint replacement. The process is performed on patients who have injuries on their joints or have arthritis. The joints affected could be that of the knee, hip, and the ankle. During this procedure, the affected joint is removed and later replaced with an artificial joint. It enables the patient to gain mobility.
The spine surgery is yet another procedure. It is conducted to treat patients who suffer from severe back pain hindering them to undertake their daily routine. During this process, the vertebra and the spine bones are joined. Also popular is the total shoulder replacement. The aim of the procedure is to treat an injured shoulder. The damaged cartilage and bone are replaced with a metal or plastic implant to help in improving the mobility at the shoulder.
