An Overview of Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is a branch of medicine that focuses on treating injuries and diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Orthopedic surgeries can help to restore an individual’s mobility, relieve pain and improve function after an injury or illness. Common orthopedic procedures include joint replacements, fractures repairs and spinal fusion surgeries. Orthopedic surgeons use complex instruments such as drills and saws to perform operations on the affected area. During surgery, anesthesia plays a vital role in protecting the patient from pain during the procedure. After surgery, physical therapy plays an important role in helping patients regain their strength and mobility. Most patients are treated with physical therapy in an outpatient clinic setting or in the comfort of their own home. The location of physical therapy will depend on the health insurance of a patient as to the best location for rehabilitation after surgery. Whether you decided to go to an outpatient physical therapy clinic or at home, it is critical to follow the instructions and regimen of the orthopedic surgeon so to get the most positive outcome and minimize recovery time.
