Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopaedic surgery deals with the treatment of ailments related to the skeleton and its attachments, like the ligaments and tendons. The surgery is also used to treat disorders related to the nervous system and those which arise from injury of the spine. These ailments may occur at birth, or through injury, or as the result of ageing. These surgeries are carried out by specialist orthopaedic surgeons or orthopaedists.

The word ‘orthopaedic’ has been formed from two Greek words,’ortho’, meaning straight and ’pais’, meaning child. Historically, orthopaedic surgeons majorly treated the bone deformities observed in children, using braces to straighten the child's bones. With the advances of modern surgical techniques, Orthopaedic surgeons began treating the bones, related nerves and connective tissues. There are specialist orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in a single branch of orthopaedics like hand surgery, joint replacements, or spine disorders. Several others also specialize in trauma aspect and are associated with trauma centres for treating injuries. The recent advancements in sports and athletics, sports medicine has seen an upward trend. Several sports medicine doctors are board certified orthopaedists. The first important step in seeking treatments is to choose a qualified orthopaedist.

Orthopaedic surgeries may be performed under general, regional, or local anaesthesia. The treatments offered by orthopaedists range from traction to amputation, hand reconstruction to spinal fusion or even joint replacements. The treatments also include broken bones, strains and sprains, and dislocations of joint. The orthopaedic surgeons deal with prosthetics to hold damaged bones or connective tissue in the form of screws, wires, pins and tongs. Although, the likelihood of success depends on the age and general health of the patient, the medical problem being treated, and the patient’s willingness to comply with rehabilitative therapy after the surgery.
