Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopaedic surgery is surgery that is performed on the musculoskeletal system – muscles and bones including feet, ankles, wrists, elbows, knees, hips and back. Orthopaedic surgery often requires the implantation of some type of device - such as plates/screws/rods/joint replacements. However, many of the surgeries that an Orthopaedic Surgeon performs are also for soft tissue and joint conditions, or nerve conditions. Surgery is performed when there is a condition that is causing pain or deformity and cannot be treated by non-surgical measures. Dr. Bush regards the use of surgery as one of the tools that are available to treat injuries or conditions of the musculoskeletal system – it is a tool that is used only when necessary or if other treatments are not successful. When surgery is discussed it is important that the patient fully understands the surgical procedure that is recommended and the post-surgical expectations and requirements. Only then should the patient make the determination to proceed with the recommended surgery
