Do All Orthopedic Patients Have Orthopedic Surgery?
Do all orthopedic surgery patients have to undergo orthopedic surgery?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Orthopedic surgery will only be done on patients who need surgery. Not all cases of orthopedic doctors are cases that require surgery. Basically an orthopedic doctor can examine and provide treatment for cases related to musculoskeletal limbs (including bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc.). Musculoskeletal problems vary and not all of them require surgery. For example, in people who have spinal curvature problems (such as scoliosis for example), the procedure does not have to be always operated, but braces can also be installed, people who have osteoarthritis, can be managed by giving the drug first or injecting intraarticular drugs, people who have dislocation joints can be managed by returning joints without surgery, and many other non-operative cases.
If indeed you get a referral to an orthopedic doctor or are advised to do an examination with an orthopedic doctor, you don't need to be scared first. Treatment will always be given according to the patient's needs. Doctors will not recommend surgery if it is not necessary. The doctor will always suggest a less invasive action first if possible.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
