Top Orthopedic Procedures in the Modern Day Market

Orthopedic surgeries touch on areas involving the skeleton and muscles in the human body. In fact, some of the solutions used by orthopedic surgeons can be non-surgical. However, there are common procedures that great orthopedic surgeons such as Greg Finch deal with on a daily basis.

Total joint replacement

This surgical procedure is done to patients who were formerly diagnosed with arthritis. Usually, patients prefer to undergo the surgery to help them increase their motion capacity as well as relieve pain. Surgeon will carry out an analysis of the damaged joints which could be anywhere in the body and then replace them with plastic or metal thus enhancing movement.

Spine surgery

This is another common procedure done by orthopedic surgeons like Mr. Grey Finch. Spine surgery is done depending on the problem. Increasing, continuous back pain can contribute towards the need for back surgery. The result of spine surgery is reduced pain and improved activity. There is an overall improvement in physical activity as well as productivity. The most common category of spine surgery is the spinal fusion, which involves the surgeon joining spinal bones together. The result here usually is movement between the bones, which eventually minimizes the stretching of nerves.

ACL reconstruction

This is when orthopedic surgeons reconstruct ruptured ligaments. The rupturing can happen during a sporting activity. The torn ligament is removed and replaced with a donor tissue. The new ligament will be secured with time when it grows.
