Orthopaedic Surgery Q & A

What is orthopaedic surgery?

Orthopaedic surgery is a medical specialty that focuses on your musculoskeletal system, which includes all the muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones in your body.

The specialists at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine underwent years of training beyond medical school to provide you with the expert care you need when you have an injury or health condition that affects your musculoskeletal system.

What conditions require orthopaedic surgery?

The team at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine are experts in several orthopaedic surgical procedures. Some of your body parts that benefit from orthopaedic surgery include your:

Knee

Knee pain is very common and can develop from an injury or due to a disease that has damaged your knee joint or its components. You may need orthopaedic surgery for your knee to repair your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear or to replace your arthritic knee joint.

Shoulder

Your shoulder is one of the most complex joints in your body and allows you to move your arm and shoulder in many different directions. Unfortunately, the range of motion in your shoulder also makes it susceptible to injury and pain. Your specialist at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine may recommend surgery to repair a rotator cuff tear or to replace the joint due to severe arthritis.

Foot and ankle

One wrong misstep and you can injure your foot or ankle. The orthopaedic specialists at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine provide the appropriate surgical and medical management for your foot or ankle condition to help you get back on your feet.

The experienced team at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine also specialize in injuries and conditions that affect the back and spine, and perform orthopaedic surgery when necessary.

How do I know if I need orthopaedic surgery?

Whether it’s your shoulder or your knee, surgery isn’t always the first option. Your orthopaedic specialist at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine determines if you would benefit from surgery based on your injury or disease, and usually only after conservative treatments have failed to work.

The experienced team at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine can provide you with the care you need to help you regain function and mobility whether you need surgery or conservative treatment. For consultation, call the office today or book an appointment online.
