Orthopedic procedures have enabled many sportsmen and women to compete effectively as orthopedic surgeons are able to diagnose any injuries and provide immediate remedies. The most frequent beneficiaries of these procedures are high schools, colleges, and pro athletes.
The first group of treatments offered by orthopedic surgeons such as Greg Finch focus on the knee. These treatment is made up of three primary procedures: ACL, Meniscectomy, and Chondroplasty. In a scenario where the orthopedic surgeon wants to examine the severity of a knee injury, he or she may choose to use arthroscopy surgery. If the results of examination process indicates severe injury, the patient will be required to undergo a more invasive procedure.
Shoulder arthroscopy is the second most common orthopedic procedure. The strategy used in this process is almost similar to that adopted for a knee injury. Small incisions are made on the injured part. An arthroscope is used to determine the severity of the injury. This procedure is used to treat injuries on the tendonitis, rotator cuff, compression, and severe sprains.
Orthopedic procedure is used treat carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel results from the compression of the median nerve. The nerve is compressed at the carpal tunnel on the wrist. The compression causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). The symptoms of this condition include sharp pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist. Apart from active sports, the condition can be caused by improper and extended use of the computer keyboard.
