There are a couple of orthopedic procedures, but before I highlight some of them, we should first know and understand what this procedure is all about. First, Orthopedics is a branch of surgery that concerns the muscles and skeleton of a person. This branch deals with musculoskeletal problems. These operations are necessary in the case of ruptures, various conditions or injuries. Most of these surgeries are operated on the knees, hip, shoulder, elbow, ankle and finally the spine.

Hip replacement, repair of the ankle fractures and repair of rotator cuff tendon are the top three frequent procedures done by these surgeons as stated by Dr. Greg Finch.

  • Repair Ankle Fractures

This kind of fracture can be caused by medical cases such as osteoporosis or cancer of the bone, falling or trauma. Fractures are painful and can cause damage to other vessels of nerves.

To repair this broken bone, it may take long for the tendons and ligaments to heal most likely six weeks, but the healing process is carefully monitored through x-rays.

Treatment is done depending on the area affected and how far spread the fracture is. The ankle is repaired surgically by inserting a plate and screws.

  • Hip Replacement

The hip joint, in this case, is replaced with a prosthetic implant. This procedure is mostly executed to relieve arthritis pains or only treat hipbone breaks and broken bones.

  • Repair Rotator Cuff Tendon

The tendon is reattached or trimmed to help reduce pressure and agony. If necessary, the tendon is stitched back to normal if there is the presence of a complete tear.

These procedures are top on the charts for they are common cases in the orthopedic field.
