A brief intro to Orthopedic Surgeons

Who is an orthopedic surgeon?

Orthopedic surgeons (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) treat the surgical and non-surgical diseases of the musculoskeletal system such as spine injuries, muscle and tendon injuries, musculoskeletal trauma, degenerative diseases, bone infections and congenital disorders. Their areas of concern —the joints, bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles—are essential for mobility so they treat a large number of conditions that hamper movement.

What kinds of surgeries are performed by orthopedic surgeons?

Orthopedic surgeons prefer using medication, physiotherapeutic treatment or exercise to treat bone related conditions and surgery is generally only used in extreme circumstances like bone breakage or deformity (followed by post-surgery rehabilitation). Listed below are some surgical procedures performed by orthopedic surgeons:

  • Osteotomy: cutting and re-positioning of bones to correct bone deformity.
  • Soft Tissue Repair: torn tendons, ligaments or other soft tissue mending.
  • Arthroscopy: For diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint via special cameras and equipment.
  • Fusion: ‘Welding’ of fractured bones through bone grafts and metal rods or other internal devices to heal into a single solid bone.
  • Internal Fixation: Using metal plates, pins or screws to hold broken pieces of bone in proper position while it heals.
  • Partial, Total and Revisional Joint replacement: Replacement or removal of a damaged or arthritic joint with a ‘prosthetic’ or artificial joint.
  • Spine surgery: For various spinal cord disorders.

When should you see an orthopedic surgeon (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن)?

Diseases of the musculoskeletal system can make it difficult to perform activities of regular mundane tasks. There are often limitations in how the patient can move, stiffness, chronic pain, swelling and other symptoms that make it difficult to perform simple tasks. Even reaching to put something in a cabinet, or getting out of bed can be challenging for some patients.

In such cases, orthopedic specialists (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) can diagnose, treat and manage conditions to minimize disability and make it easier to perform everyday tasks. The goal of therapy in such cases is to increase the range of motion through either physical therapy, medication, other non-surgical options, or surgery. If you are someone who is experiencing this kind of problem, then it’s time to seek the help of an experienced orthopedic surgeon.

Orthopedic specialists (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) also deal with old and new injuries. Fractures, dislocations, chronic pain due to fractures, tendon tears, muscle injury and stress fractures are common reasons people visit orthopedic doctors. Sports injuries are common in people who play contact sports so athletes often work together with orthopedic specialists to minimize their risk of injury and prevent debilitation.

If you experience the listed symptoms for 3 days consecutively or several times a month, consulting an orthopedic surgeon might be a good idea.

  • Difficulty using a specific body part to perform daily tasks
  • Persistent and increasingly intense pain in muscles, joints and tendons
  • Any joint deformity
  • Inflammation, fever, or redness after an injury
  • Swelling or bruising around the joint or injury
  • Being unable to straighten your back or stiffness when standing.

What are the main areas of concern of an orthopedic surgeon (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن)?

The main reason people visit orthopedic surgeons (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) is chronic musculoskeletal pain. Additionally, common disorders that also fall under the domain of an orthopedic surgeon include: sports injuries, bone tumors, osteoporosis, joint reconstruction and limb lengthening, elbow and shoulder injuries, foot and ankle injuries, back pain, spinal stenosis and ruptured disc, and arthritis.

Orthopedic surgeons (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) also treat patients with non-surgical methods and only approach surgery if there is no other option, especially for correction. An orthopedic surgeon can also recommend rehabilitation for chronic conditions. They can work in conjunction with other specialists, and can refer patients to rehabilitation doctors, sports therapists, physical therapists and pain specialists for best management. The end goal is to improve the quality of life of the patient, help them increase their range of motion and be pain free.

Orthopedic doctors (آرتھوپیڈک سرجن) see patients from all ages, and all walks of life. Most of the orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions are chronic and progressive. The only way to manage them is to timely reach out to a professional and get help.
