Orthopedic procedures are carried out on muscles and skeletons of the human body, although sometimes doctors can use non-surgical methods to rectify related problems. Physicians such as Greg Finch and other orthopedists are dedicated to carrying out orthopedic surgeries. There are several types of such procedures, but the following orthopedic procedures are the most common.
Increased back pain can render one unable of carrying their day-to-day activities, and it is one of the main reasons why most patients seek spinal surgery. To relieve the pain, Greg Finch or any other orthopedist will perform a spinal fusion. This procedure involves joining the vertebrae (spinal bones).
Total Shoulder Replacement
Greg will perform total shoulder replacement procedure to patients who are suffering from chronic shoulder pains. Despite sounding painful, the process is gentle and very effective in helping diminish the pain. Excessively damaged cartilages can be replaced either by plastic or metal implants.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstructions involve rectifying the knee ligament in the case of a rupture. The orthopedist removes the ruptured ligament and replaces with tissue from another part of the body or a donated tissue by screwing it in place. The new tissue will fill in the tunnels created during the procedure holding the ligament in place.
