Orthopedics or orthopedic surgery targets conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Not all orthopedic procedures require surgical approaches. The most common form of orthopedics are spine surgery, ACL reconstruction, total joint replacement, and total shoulder replacement. Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction involves the reconstruction of major stabilizing ligament of the knee when it raptures. Spine surgery can occur after a persistent back pain, while total joint replace surgery is performed on patients having severe arthritis. Damaged joints in the body are replaced with plastic and metal surfaces. With total shoulder replacement, damaged parts of the bones and cartilage are replaced with a plastic or a metal/metallic implant. Shoulder anthroscopy may be used to treat injuries on the rotator cuff, tendonitis, severe sprains and compressions. Many athletes and sports persons have benefited greatly from orthopedic procedures. Notably, orthopedic surgeons must have sound educational background.
