Musculoskeletal problems affect many Americans. These conditions, which involve the muscles, bones, and joints of the body all come under the umbrella of orthopedic conditions. Musculoskeletal problems can arise from a wide range of different causes, including sports or workplace-related accidents and injuries, degenerative conditions, or, in some instances, they can be present at birth. Orthopedic conditions can be problematic and, if left untreated, may lead to disabilities that inhibit a person’s ability to perform day-to-day tasks, such as washing the dishes, cooking dinner or even having a comfortable walk. These conditions can even impact a person’s ability to be productive at work.
For these reasons it is important to properly care for your musculoskeletal system and, when something goes wrong, to have the problem promptly and expertly diagnosed and treated. If you have a musculoskeletal condition and have not been able to obtain relief through conservative treatment, surgery could be an option or, depending on the severity of the condition, it might become a necessity in order to prevent the condition from progressing and causing irreversible nerve or organ damage. Some musculoskeletal problems, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, or one of the many other diseases that affect the body’s musculoskeletal system may require surgery.
There are numerous orthopedic surgeries that can be performed using minimally invasive procedures that require very small incisions, often less than an inch. Other techniques can resolve the problem with minimal disturbance to surrounding muscles. What these advanced techniques mean to you, the patient, is faster healing, less discomfort after surgery and minimal scarring so that you can quickly get back to living an active, pain-free life.

How Orthopedic Surgery Works
The majority of orthopedic procedures are now performed arthroscopically, minimally invasive cartilage surgery and reconstructions of torn ligaments. Arthroscopy helps patients recover from the surgery in a matter of days, rather than the weeks to months required by conventional, ‘open’ surgery. Knee arthroscopy is one of the most common operations performed by orthopedic surgeons today and is often combined with meniscectomy or chondroplasty.
