Orthopedic Surgery Q & A

What is orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery is a medical specialty that provides surgeries designed to address injuries and diseases that affect your musculoskeletal system. Your musculoskeletal system is a complicated network, which includes:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Nerves

The role of your orthopedic surgeon at Brooklyn Medical Services of NY PLLC is keeping this system in good health. 

They accurately diagnose musculoskeletal injuries and diseases, and provide treatments using the most innovative methods in orthopedics. If you need surgery, the practice offers the convenience of state-of-the-art surgical suites.

What injuries and conditions are addressed by orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery at Brooklyn Medical Services of NY PLLC treats many of the most common issues affecting your musculoskeletal system. Surgery can address:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Car accident injuries
  • Workplace injuries

Orthopedic surgery also can treat slip-and-fall injuries, as well as other personal injuries.

What are the types of orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery includes specialized treatments to address pain, strains, tears, and much more. For example, arthroscopy is a procedure where your surgeon uses tiny cameras and surgical equipment to see and treat problems inside your joint, such as a rotator cuff tear and knee and wrist injuries. 

The team at Brooklyn Medical Services of NY PLLC also performs soft-tissue repairs to mend torn tendons or ligaments. 

Internal fixation is a type of orthopedic surgery used to repair a severe fracture. Fixation works by holding broken pieces of bone in the correct position with pins, screws, or metal plates while the bone is healing. 

For worn, arthritic, or damaged joints, your surgeon may recommend joint replacement. This type of orthopedic surgery involves replacing part of your damaged joint with a human-made prosthetic joint. 

Surgical methods to address back and neck pain include fusion, where your surgeon fuses spinal bones together. 

This treatment also may involve bone grafts or metal rods. Another procedure is osteotomy, where your surgeon corrects a bone deformity by cutting and repositioning your bone.

You can expect your surgeon at Brooklyn Medical Services of NY PLLC to tailor your treatment to your exact injury or medical condition.
