Orthopedic surgeries are surgeries that involve the musculoskeletal system. There are a huge range of different orthopedic surgeries but some are more common than others.

Shoulder Surgery

One of the most common procedures in orthopedic surgery is shoulder surgery. The shoulders are one of the most-used joints in the body and can wear out over time. A total shoulder joint replacement surgery can be done to bring back the patient’s range of motion. Shoulder surgery will also reduce the patient’s shoulder pain and increase their quality of life.

ACL Surgery

The Anterior cruciate ligament, or the ACL, is a ligament that helps to stabilize your knee. One of the most common orthopedic surgeries is repair to damaged ACL ligaments. ACL tears and ruptures are common, and surgery is often done to reattach and repair this ligament.

Spine Surgery

Spine surgery is a common orthopedic surgery most often done on people who have damaged their back, broken their back or on people who suffer from chronic back pain. Orthopedic spinal surgery can also be done to help repair damaged discs. One of the most common spinal surgeries is a spinal fusion, where the vertebrae of the spine are joined together. This helps reduce nerve pain and can alleviate even the most stubborn back pain.
