“The joint used in my hip replacement operation was of poor quality and had to be replaced again.”
Orthopaedic surgery involves repairs to bones and joints – including surgery to repair fractures, joint replacement surgery and treating conditions which may cause bones to become distorted or not grow at a normal rate.
Orthopaedic surgery also treats the connective tissues such as nerves, tendons, muscles and ligaments – and many sports injuries such as a detached ligament would be treated by an orthopaedic surgeon.
