Orthopedic Surgery - Lokman Hekim Health Group

What is Orthopedic Surgery?


Orthopedic surgery is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of injuries, disorders, and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Orthopedic surgeons are highly trained medical professionals who use a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques to help patients regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve their overall quality of life.

In which cases orthopedic surgery is required?

Orthopedic surgery may be required for a variety of reasons related to injuries, disorders, or diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Some common reasons why orthopedic surgery may be required include:

  1. Joint pain or stiffness that limits mobility and affects quality of life, such as in the case of arthritis or degenerative joint disease.
  2. Traumatic injuries, such as fractures or dislocations, that require surgical repair to realign and stabilize the affected bones or joints.
  3. Torn ligaments or tendons that require surgical repair to regain strength and function.
  4. Spinal conditions, such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or scoliosis, that may require surgical intervention to relieve pain and improve mobility.
  5. Sports injuries, such as ACL tears or rotator cuff injuries, that require surgical repair to restore function and prevent further damage.
  6. Congenital conditions, such as clubfoot or hip dysplasia, that require surgical correction to improve mobility and prevent further complications.

Orthopedic surgery is usually considered after other non-surgical treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, or lifestyle changes, have been unsuccessful in relieving symptoms or improving mobility. Orthopedic surgeons work closely with patients to determine the best treatment options based on their individual needs and goals.

The sub-titles of diseases that will require orthopedic surgery can be listed as follows;

  1. Arthroplasty surgery (joint prostheses)
  2. Sports traumatology
  3. Lengthening and leg inequalities
  4. Pediatric orthopedics and traumatology
  5. Hand surgery and microsurgery
  6. Knee surgery and arthroscopic surgery
  7. Shoulder and elbow surgery
  8. Orthopedic oncology
  9. Foot and ankle surgery
  10. Bone Inflammation (Osteomyelitis) treatment

Some Common Orthopedic Procedures Include

Orthopedic surgeons are highly trained medical professionals who use a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques to help patients regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve their overall quality of life. Some common orthopedic procedures include:

Joint replacement surgery: This involves removing damaged or diseased joint tissue and replacing it with a prosthetic implant made from metal, plastic, or ceramic.

Arthroscopy: A minimally invasive surgical technique that involves inserting a small camera into the joint to diagnose and treat a variety of joint-related conditions.

Fracture repair: This involves realigning and stabilizing broken bones using metal pins, plates, screws, or rods.

Spinal surgery: This includes a wide range of procedures to treat spinal conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and scoliosis.

Sports medicine: This involves the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and conditions related to athletic activities, such as ACL tears and rotator cuff injuries.

Orthopedic surgery is often used as a last resort when other non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, or lifestyle changes, have not been effective. Recovery time and success rates vary depending on the specific procedure and the patient’s individual circumstances. However, with proper care and rehabilitation, many patients are able to regain their mobility and enjoy a better quality of life after orthopedic surgery.
