Orthopaedics


Orthopedics is the study of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic doctors help patients with the diagnosis of problems associated with the bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves of the body. Orthopedics is one of many medical specialties.

Metal implants are often used in orthopedic procedures including joint replacements, fracture repair, and correction of deformities. These implants are made of different types of metals.

Knee Replacement Surgery
Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a highly successful surgical procedure which involves replacement of all threecompartments of the knee Knee replacement surgery involves replacing some or all of the components of the knee joint with a synthetic implant, to repair the damaged weight-bearing surfaces that are causing pain. Atotal knee replacement surgeryreplaces all three compartments of the diseased knee joint. A partial knee replacement involves an implant in just one or two compartments of the knee, retaining any undamaged parts. While there are non-surgicaland surgical interventions short of knee replacement which will often provide temporary relief, the long-term resolution to most knee degeneration will be joint replacement. There are several different implant designs (see: total implants | partial implants) but each will offer renewed stability and movement. Overall, there are two main benefits to be gained from knee replacement surgery: (1) elimination of pain and (2) improved range of motion. Of all possible surgical interventions, total knee replacement offers the greatest quality of life improvement. The procedure has a high rate of success.

Hip joint replacement
Hip joint replacement is surgery to replace all or part of the hip joint with a man-made (artificial) joint. The artificial joint is called a prosthesis. The most common reason to have a hip joint replaced is to relieve severe arthritis pain that is limiting your activities.
Hip joint replacement is usually done in people age 60 and older, but many people who have this surgery are younger. Younger people who have a hip replaced may put extra stress on the artificial hip. That extra stress can cause it to wear out. Part or all of the joint may need to be replaced again if that happens.
