The purpose behind most orthopedic surgical procedures is to increase and enhance mobility of a joint as well as to repair damaged bone, muscular, or neural tissues caused by sports injuries, arthritis, fractures, and muscle and bone diseases. Common orthopedic procedures include partial or total hip or placement surgery, as well as hip resurfacing surgery, partial or total knee replacement procedures and those that focus on hands, elbow, or shoulder joints.
Orthopedics treatments and surgeries help to treat chronic diseases such as various forms of arthritis in the hands, knees and back. For example, rheumatoid arthritis severely inhibits mobility in the fingers and hands. Treatments and surgeries designed to relieve pain and increase mobility require a team effort from specialists in orthopedic surgery as well as specialists who focus on the musculature damage such arthritis causes.
