Orthopedic surgery

This specialty is concerned with the locomotion facilities of the body: bones, articulations, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Abnormalities within these parts of the body could be genetic or provoked by an illness. Traumatology specifically treats alterations to the motor apparatus, as a consequence of an accident.

In order to replace an articulation of the hip, shoulder or knee, with an implant, the orthopedic surgeon employs methods of operation, which are technically advanced.

Other than the most modern of technology, the surgical orthopedic specialist also employs, where appropriate, more traditional methods, such as bandages and special plasters (a cast or other material). They are also the specialist of diverse, auxiliary techniques, such as prostheses, walking aids or plantar supports.
