Top 4 Most Common Orthopedic Surgeries

Posted on

Orthopedic surgery has to do with conditions that involve the muscles and bones in the body, even though orthopedic surgeons may use nonsurgical approaches to solve orthopedic problems as well. Our rehabilitation equipment can help patients recover from any of the four most common orthopedic surgeries.

  • Total Joint Replacement
    • Most patients who go through a total joint replacement surgery are previously diagnosed with severe arthritis and seek pain relief and increased range of motion.
  • Total Shoulder Replacement
    • It may sound painful, but this procedure can greatly help patients feel better over time, reducing the pain they may be feeling in a joint they use so much, like the shoulder. The procedure involves replacing damaged parts of the bone and cartilage with a metal or plastic implant.
  • Spine Surgery
    • There are a number of problems that may lead to spine surgery. One of the main reasons patients seek help is because of increasing back pain that impairs their daily life.
  • ACL Reconstruction
    • The Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or ACL, is the major stabilizing ligament of the knee. Surgeons reconstruct the ligament when it ruptures, which can happen while participating in sports or twisting the knee the wrong way. During this procedure the torn ligament is removed and re-created using your own tissue or the tissue of an organ donor.

The Medcom Group has been in the business of helping patients recover from orthopedic procedures since 1988. We have been working with health care facilities to provide quality and durable medical and rehab equipment and services, while focusing on improving recovery outcomes.
