Orthopedic surgeries involve the bone structure of a person’s body which will sometimes need correction due to an injury or some form of disease. Not all common orthopedic surgeries are considered highly invasive.
Injuries typically occur when a patient has twisted a joint within the body such as a knee which can cause torn ligaments or fractured bones. An orthopedic surgeon will need to repair the knee by using a non-invasive procedure known as an arthroscopy. The surgeon places a small incision to perform the surgery through an endoscope. This procedure also reduces a patient’s recover time substantially. An arthroscopic procedure will not be an invasive procedure, but the diagnosis and treatment will need the expertise of a skilled orthopedic.
Joint replacements are the most in-depth and the most invasive surgery a patient can undergo. Joint replacements are much more invasive and they are typically needed due to bone degeneration or arthritis. Those elements can be affected by age or an inactive lifestyle, but they’re typically associated with patients who are considered elderly.
