Orthopaedics, Advancements in technology are such today, that when a body joint is lacking in its natural lubricant, causing arthritis pain and decreased mobility, it can be safely corrected.
Orthopaedic surgeons treat problems of the musculoskeletal system. This involves:
- Diagnosis of your injury or disorder
- Treatment with medication, exercise, casting, surgery, or other options
- Rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physical therapy to restore movement, strength, and function
- Prevention with information and treatment plans to prevent injury or slow the progression of the disease
While orthopaedics surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system, many orthopaedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, spine, shoulder, hand, hip, or knee. They may also choose to focus on specific fields like pediatrics, trauma, or sports medicine. Some orthopaedic surgeons may specialize in several areas.
Education and Training.
Your orthopaedics surgeon is a medical doctor with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. He or she has completed up to 14 years of formal education, including:
- Four years of study in a college or university
- Four years of study in medical school
- Five years of training in an orthopaedic residency at a major medical center
- One or two optional years of fellowship in a specialized area
After establishing a licensed practice, your orthopaedic surgeon has demonstrated mastery of orthopaedic knowledge by passing certifying examinations given by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He or she will continue in a career-long Maintenance of Certification process.
In addition, your orthopaedic surgeon spends many hours studying, attending continuing medical education courses, and taking self-assessment examinations to stay up-to-date.
Your Doctor’s Visit
Your orthopaedics surgeon will take a history of your illness or injury and then do a physical examination. This may be followed by diagnostic studies such as x-rays or blood tests.
He or she will then discuss your diagnosis and help you select the best treatment plan so that you can live an active and functional life.
Orthopaedic surgeons treat many musculoskeletal conditions without surgery—by using the medication, exercise, and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies.
For most orthopaedic diseases and injuries there is more than one form of treatment. If necessary, your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend surgery if you do not respond to nonsurgical treatments.
Orthopaedic surgeons perform numerous types of surgeries. Common procedures include:
Arthroscopy—a procedure that uses special cameras and equipment to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint.
Fusion—a “welding” process by which bones are fused together with bone grafts and internal devices (such as metal rods) to heal into a single solid bone.
Internal fixation—a method to hold the broken pieces of bone in proper position with metal plates, pins, or screws while the bone is healing.
Joint replacement (partial, total, and revision)—when an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis.
Osteotomy—the correction of bone deformity by cutting and repositioning the bone.
Soft tissue repair—the mending of soft tissue, such as torn tendons or ligaments.
