Orthopaedic Surgery

What is Orthopaedic Surgery​

The human skeleton consists of over 200 bones in the body, each with a different form and function. What’s incredible is how they move in perfect synchrony, allowing us a wide range of motions from a small sneeze or yawn to a full stretch, a somersault or the ability to walk and run. Movement comes so naturally that we seldom pay any attention to it until struck by pain or discomfort. With the help of modern imaging technology such as the CT scan and MRI, our orthopaedic surgeons manoeuvre misaligned bones and joints, fix sports injuries and find solutions for musculoskeletal problems.

Who is an Orthopaedic Surgeon?

Orthopaedic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries and disorders related to the musculoskeletal system. They have extensive training and expertise in the management of a wide range of conditions that affect bones, joints, muscles and soft tissues.

Orthopaedic surgeons and bone specialists use a variety of techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders. They may use imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds to help diagnose the underlying cause of the patient’s symptoms.

They may also perform minimally invasive surgical procedures or more complex surgeries to repair or replace damaged joints, bones or other tissues.

When to See an Orthopaedic Surgeon

There are many reasons why someone may need to see an orthopaedic surgeon.

Here are some common conditions that may require the expertise of an orthopaedic surgeon:

Joint pain

If you are experiencing chronic joint pain or stiffness, it may be a sign of arthritis or another degenerative joint condition. An orthopaedic surgeon can help diagnose the cause of your joint pain and recommend treatment options, such as physical therapy, medications or surgery.

Sports Injuries

Athletes are at risk of a variety of injuries, including torn ligaments, fractured bones and dislocated joints. Orthopaedic surgeons have experience treating sports-related injuries and can help athletes recover and get back to their sport as quickly and safely as possible.

Back and Neck Pain

Chronic back and neck pain can be debilitating and affect your quality of life. Orthopaedic surgeons can help diagnose the underlying cause of your pain and recommend treatments such as physical therapy, injections or surgery.

Fractures

Broken bones can be painful and require specialized treatment to heal properly. Orthopaedic surgeons can set broken bones and ensure they are properly aligned to promote healing.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This condition is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist and can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers. Orthopaedic surgeons can diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome through a variety of methods, including surgery.
