Orthopedic Surgery consists of the treatment involving the musculoskeletal system of a patient. Orthopedic surgeons use both invasive and non-invasive surgeries to treat the musculoskeletal system which can be the result of a person’s age, an injury, or diseases.
More common are joint replacement surgeries which are due to a person’s age. They are mostly associated with elderly patients with lack of bone strength which requires invasive surgery. With joint replacements, a person typically has severe pain in their knee or hip, which is caused by arthritis or degenerative bone structure. Degenerative diseases are the result of cell changes within a person’s body, which affects various tissues and organs that deteriorate as a patient ages. A contributing factor for this disease can also be highly inactive physical lives.
Non-invasive surgeries are commonly used for patients who have not sustained trauma, but they’re experiencing pain within their joint. The most common surgery is arthroscopy of the knee. This type of surgery is completed on two million patients each year. Because the surgery requires only a small incision of the treated area; patients are able to recover much more quickly.
