Orthopedic surgery covers a wide range of problems, from torn ligaments and fractures to compressed nerves and damaged joints. The board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons at Mid Atlantic Orthopedic Associates, LLP, located in East Brunswick, New Jersey, possess unsurpassed surgical skills and experience repairing every type of musculoskeletal condition.
Complex fractures require immediate surgery to realign and stabilize the bones. Ruptured ligaments seldom regain optimum strength without surgical reconstruction. And other injuries may need surgery as the first treatment because they affect tissues that don’t have a blood supply.
For most orthopedic injuries and conditions, however, orthopedic surgery is the last treatment option. Your provider at Mid Atlantic Orthopedic Associates, LLP, recommends surgery when other treatments, such as immobilization and physical therapy, fail to improve your symptoms.
The musculoskeletal conditions that have a higher chance of needing orthopedic surgery include:
This list is far from comprehensive, but it gives you a general idea of the many orthopedic problems that may ultimately require surgical repair.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique for diagnosing and repairing problems in your joints. Minimally invasive surgery is possible thanks to today’s advanced instruments that are narrow enough to fit through tiny incisions.
By comparison, open surgery requires a long incision. Then the skin, muscles, and other tissues are pulled back to create an opening that’s large enough for the surgeon’s hands and instruments.
The orthopedic surgeons at Mid Atlantic Orthopedic Associates, LLP, can take care of most joint problems using arthroscopic surgery. For example, they can:
