In general, orthopedic surgery involves the diagnosis of and preoperative, operative, and postoperative treatment of diseases and injuries relating to our musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons are responsible for treating ailments relating to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. By far, the most common orthopedic surgical procedures include: arthroscopy, which involves problems inside the joints; soft tissue repair, for torn ligaments and tendons; join replacement, for which damaged joints are replaced with a prosthesis; revision joint surgery, whereby preexistent implants are replaced by new ones; bone fracture repair, wherein broken pieces of bone are re-positioned using metal plates, screws or pins; debridement, for which damaged soft tissues or bones are removed; fusion of bones, in which grafts are used to fuse bones together; spine fusion, in which the spinal vertebrae are joined; and osteotomy, aimed at resolving bone deformations.
