Having any kind of surgery can be difficult for many patients; whether it is elective surgery, or emergency surgery. Some patients will need orthopedic surgery once they reach a certain age in life. It is common for the elderly to undergo knee replacement, or hip replacement, if they reach a level of unbearable pain. These joint replacement surgeries can become a great source of relief to patients who generally return to a normal productive life in a very short recovery period.
When it comes to patients needing emergency surgery, it is typically the result of a traumatic event occurring that has damaged the musculoskeletal system requiring immediate repair. Common among these surgeries are damages related to sports injuries.
It is not uncommon for an athlete to twist a joint in an unusual pattern that not only causes severe pain, but also does substantial damage that requires immediate surgery before causing further destruction. These common traumas can be the repair of a femorial neck injury, repair of an ankle, or any type of severe bone fracture.
