While Orthopedic doctors like Greg Finch treat many types of injuries there are some proceedures that are most common. The four most common orthopedic surgeries are total joint replacement, total shoulder replacement, spine surgery and ACL reconstruction.
Patients that have total joint replacement surgery have damaged parts of the joint replaced with plastic and metal surfaces that are naturally shaped to restore function and movement. These patients are previously diagnosed typically with severe arthritis. Total shoulder replacement will diminish the pain that patients are suffering from in their shoulder joint. Damaged sections of bone and cartilage in the shoulder are replaced with an implant made of metal or platic. This surgery will improve the range of motion in the shoulder.
Spine surgery helps patients who suffer from severe back pain that inhibits their daily functions. Spinal fusion is the most common type of back surgery. Spinal fusion will decrease motion between the bones of the spine and helps limit the stretching of nerves. During the proceedure, the surgeon will join the spinal bones together. Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction is when surgeons reconstruct torn ligament. The ACL is the major stabalizing ligament of the knee. Damaged ligament will be removed and surgeons use a patients own tissue to make a new ACL.
