What is Orthopaedic Surgery? 

Also called orthopaedics, and often spelled orthopaedics, this is the branch of surgery focusing on conditions of the musculoskeletal system. It handles acute injuries, congenital disorders, acquired disorders, chronic arthritic conditions and damage through overuse, looking at the bones, the joints, and vital associated soft tissues like your ligaments, nerves and muscles.

Most orthopaedic surgeons work closely with general surgeons in emergency trauma facilities, handling bony and soft tissue injuries in A & E, and tend to specialise in a specific area of the discipline.

What procedures can you find at an Orthopaedic Surgery clinic? 

  • Arthroscopy
  • Fixing fused bones  
  • Internal fixation to hold broken bones together while they heal 
  • Partial and total joint replacement
  • Revision joint replacement  
  • Osteotomy to correct bone deformities 
  • Soft tissue repair including tendons and ligaments 
  • Medication
  • Exercise
  • Rehabilitation 
  • Alternative therapies
  • Corrective surgery 
  • General repair

What should you expect at an Orthopaedic Surgery clinic?

When you meet with an orthopaedic surgeon for the first time you will probably have an examination, X-Rays and/or an MRI scan, plus some physical tests. They’ll take a comprehensive medical history, so be ready to describe the pain and discomfort and how it affects your everyday life. Mention any previous injuries that might be contributing to the pain, and share any pain records you’ve been asked to keep with your surgeon. 

They will ask questions about your general health, lifestyle, medicines and existing conditions, things like arthritis, osteoporosis, anaemia and diabetes, simply because some pre-existing conditions affect the treatment they recommend. Once they’ve gathered and analysed all the information and test results, your surgeon will recommend a treatment plan for you.
