Are you tired of living with chronic joint pain holding you back from your daily activities? Are you ready to get back on your feet and regain the mobility you once had? If so, orthopaedic surgery may be the answer. From joint replacements to repairs, there are a variety of procedures available to help alleviate discomfort and improve functionality.

Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopaedic surgery is a branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating conditions and injuries in the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Orthopaedic surgeons use various techniques to treat these conditions, including medication, physical therapy, braces, and surgery.

The goal of orthopaedic surgery is to restore function and relieve pain. Orthopaedic surgeons work closely with other health care providers, such as primary care physicians, physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists), and occupational therapists, to provide comprehensive care for their patients.

Orthopaedic surgery is divided into subspecialties based on the area of the body or the type of condition being treated. Some common subspecialties include hip and knee surgery, spine surgery, hand and wrist surgery, foot and ankle surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, sports medicine, paediatrics (children’s) orthopaedics, trauma (injury) orthopaedics, and oncology (cancer) orthopaedics.
