Orthopaedic surgery: A helpful Guide

Orthopaedic surgery North Bergen

Orthopedics cover all aspects of the musculoskeletal system. Our specialist here at Kayal Orthopaedic Center can treat a wide range of conditions that affect your muscles and bones. This includes all kinds of sports injuries, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Some treatments require physical therapy, exercise, and medicine. However, in some cases, your doctor will need to take things further and will suggest surgery. 

What operations do orthopaedic surgeons perform? 

As the musculoskeletal system is made up of so many different components, it is not uncommon for fractures and breaks to happen. When traditional treatments like medicine and physical therapy prove insufficient, surgery may be the only option. Here are the operations your surgeon will perform.

Total Joint Replacement

Total joint replacement surgery is an operation in which damaged joints are totally removed and then replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. This prosthesis is designed to perfectly mimic the movements of the joint.

 

The procedure is most common with hip and knee replacements but can also be done with the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow. It can be very effective in improving quality of life and provide a seamless replacement for the damaged joint.

Arthroscopic surgery 

Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure that uses a device called an arthroscope to diagnose joint problems. It is very popular due to the fact that it is a minimally invasive orthopedic surgery.

The procedure involves using a long, thin camera (or arthroscope), that your doctor inserts into the patient’s joint. The camera allows your doctor to see the workings of the joint via a video camera and perform an effective diagnosis.

Your specialist can then make additional small, non-invasive incisions that enable you to fix a wide array of issues.  Arthroscopic surgery is used to repair many common joint injuries, such as meniscus tears.

Fracture Repair Surgery 

Broken bones are one of the most common problems faced by orthopaedic providers and often require fracture repair surgery when the bone is unable to repair properly. The surgery itself is done under anesthesia and involves setting the fractured bone back into place and bracing it with surgical aids such as screws, pins, and rods.

Bone Grafting Surgery 

A bone grafting surgery involves using bone from somewhere else in the body as a brace or scaffold to support the growth of the damaged bone. It is an option your doctor may recommend when a fractured bone is healing poorly.

Spinal Fusion 

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that involves permanently connecting, or fusing, two vertebrae together and eliminating any movement. The newly formed bone, once healed correctly, will improve stability, and eliminate pain. Your specialist may recommend this procedure to effectively treat spinal weakness or a herniated disk.

Conclusion

Surgery is often a necessary last resort to treat issues with the musculoskeletal system. Modern medicine has made surgery more effective than ever before with several minimally invasive surgical options. When finding the right specialist for your surgery, it’s imperative to find the absolute best doctor for the job. Kayal Orthopaedic Center is an award winning practice with a history of excellence.
