- Knee Arthroscopy
This procedure is done to treat problems inside of the joint. An arthroscope is the tool used to perform the procedure. One of the most common types of arthroscopy procedures is a knee arthroscopy.
The surgeon uses the arthroscope to make a small incision into the knee. They insert a camera and then view the inside of the knee joint. They’ll look at the screen to determine what kind of problems are affecting the knee, and if they find anything, then they will use small instruments to correct the issue. This procedure helps surgeons find out if a kneecap is not aligned properly or if there’s a torn meniscus. It can be used to repair the joint’s ligaments.
- Bone Fracture Repair
Another common orthopedic procedure is bone fracture repair. If a bone has become fractured, then an orthopedic surgeon will examine it to determine the extent of the fracture. This is to help them figure out whether or not the procedure can be done in one session or if multiple sessions are needed.
The surgeon will use tools, such as metal plates, pins and/or screws to re-positioned the broken pieces of bones. For example, if you fractured your shin bone, the surgeon may use a metal plate and a few pins to re-positioned the shin to where it’s supposed to be. Over time, the fracture should heal and the shin should be back in its correct position.
