Orthopedic Surgery Q & A

What is orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery is a group of procedures that treat deformities, diseases, and injuries within the musculoskeletal system. 

The board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists at Martin Orthopedics perform all types of orthopedic surgery, including minimally invasive procedures and traditional open surgeries, based upon your needs.

When might I need orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery may be an option if you have chronic stubborn pain, stiffness, and function issues that don't improve with non-surgical care or minimally invasive procedures. There are many reasons for these types of treatment-resistant issues, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bone tumors
  • Fractures
  • Osteonecrosis (bone death)
  • Bone infection
  • Pinched nerve (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Frequent joint dislocations
  • Traumatic injury
  • Sports injuries (e.g., meniscus tear, rotator cuff tear, ACL tear, and others)

Many people experience good results with physical therapy and other non-surgical treatments, but if those approaches don't help, orthopedic surgery can restore you to full function.

What are the different orthopedic surgery options?

Martin Orthopedics offers orthopedic surgery such as:

Arthroscopic surgery

Arthroscopic surgery features an arthroscope, a tube with an internal camera. The arthroscope sends images to a screen where your surgeon examines your joint from the inside. 

Arthroscopic surgery is a common diagnostic procedure, and, in many cases, surgeons can immediately treat problems that they diagnose. 

Joint replacement surgery

Joint replacement, such as hip replacement and knee replacement, replaces your joint surfaces (the part of the bones that rub together) with plastic, metal, or ceramic components. 

The replacement joint shares the same anatomy as your natural joint, and advanced designs create fluid movement.

Joint revision surgery

Joint revision surgery is a procedure to replace part or all of a joint replacement. You may need this kind of surgery if your joint implants loosen or pop out of alignment or if you develop an infection around your joint implants. 

Another reason for joint revision surgery is implant wear-and-tear over the years. Because artificial joints can wear down over time, a person who has a joint replacement surgery in their 40s may potentially need new joint replacements in their 50s or 60s. 

Joint preservation surgery 

Joint preservation surgery is a procedure to encourage cartilage regrowth in a damaged joint. You may need this procedure if you're losing cartilage because of an accident or wear-and-tear. Joint preservation surgery can delay or prevent arthritis. 

These are the main orthopedic surgery options, but the highly trained specialists at Martin Orthopedics also provide other customized procedures based on what will give you the optimal results.
