Orthopedics is a medical speciality that deals with the treatment of disorders and diseases involving the musculoskeletal system. This speciality is looked after by an orthopaedic doctor. An orthopaedic clinic focuses of the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, including infections, tumour, injuries, trauma and degenerative disease. Treatment is administered with the help of both surgical and non-surgical means.
An orthopaedic specialist who uses surgical means to treat the patient is known as an orthopaedic surgeon. One of the popular procedures conducted by a surgeon in this field includes total knee replacement. During a typical knee replacement surgery, the weight-bearing parts of the knee suffering from extreme pain and inflammation caused due to osteoarthritis or any other condition are replaced with prosthetic parts.
Other popular orthopaedic surgery procedures include hip replacement, laminectomy, surgery of the intervertebral disc, surgery for any type of fracture, shoulder decompression, spinal fusion and chondroplasty.
Best orthopaedic surgeons are highly experienced in handling all sought of complexities associated with the treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
