The reason why orthopedic surgeries are necessary is that problems can occur with the musculoskeletal system that is responsible for moving the body so that it can perform its functions. When the structure of the musculoskeletal system is not correctly formed, it can cause the body to misalign its own bones, which can cause the body to have a misaligned hour structure, which can cause joint and/or digression problems.
If it is also misaligned in the spine, it can cause the curvature of the spine to cause pressure on the nerves and can cause the body’s immune system to become compromised. Proper alignment can also prevent degenerative Joint disease (driven by age, unhealthy storage of plaque, and lack of mobility), osteoarthritis, commonly known as degenerative joint disease, and can actually extend the length of your life.
The first thing your doctor will do is provide you with a baseline medical history. He will want to know about your family’s medical history. He will do a thorough medical examination and possibly screen for other diseases, such as blood clots and anemia.
During the procedure, your doctor will make an incision in your upper body. He will remove the kneecap in order to place a weight on it. He used small pieces of bone and metal plates to align the bones, just like in traditional surgery. However, he used nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help speed the bone’s removal and lessen the amount of pain you would feel during the procedure.
Once the alignment is done, your doctor will prepare your back with a special dressing and recommend physical therapy to help you adjust to your newfound feet. Most of the surgical procedures done these days are done laparoscopically, which minimizes the risk of injuring the soft tissues. It is necessary to inform your doctor in advance if you use braces or extended feet. He will tell you what the appropriate medications will be in order to avoid a procedure that can prolong your stay.
Surgical procedures are often anxiety-provoking. Your doctor will tell you what to expect during each stage of the procedure so you will remain calm and focused. He will touch your body and make adjustments to fix the alignment. As you heal, you will be guided by your therapist to begin your exercises so you can get your body into a permanent new shape and lose weight in the process.
In each stage of the procedure, your doctor will take measurements of your foot and ankle circumference every day for a week. They will call for x-rays and MRI’s during each stage of treatment, which are necessary to assess the damage done by the procedure.
Following each treatment stage, your doctor will evaluate the results of the treatment. Depending on the results, they may recommend physical therapy to you. You will probably undergo this treatment at home. It can help to provide you with the stiffness and strength that you may need. Your doctor may or may not require you to wear a cast while you recover, depending on the results of your treatment.
Clearly, the advantages of having surgery are that it is fast, less invasive, costs a lot of money and is made with a high level of accuracy. You can avoid a lot of unpleasant treatments and risks by taking the time to prepare for them. The disadvantage of this treatment option is the recovery time. While it is less invasive, the days of being pain free a lot longer may be gone forever.
