Orthopaedic Injury

Orthopaedic surgery or orthopaedics is the branch of medicine concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system of the human body, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It involves both surgical and nonsurgical treatment of musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, amputations, and congenital disorders.

 

Although, a vast number of orthopaedic procedures are carried out successfully, unfortunately, some orthopaedic procedures do not go according to plan, and patients may end up with serious long-term health and mobility problems because of orthopaedic negligence. In some orthopaedic injury cases, the results can also be psychological damage, and huge financial losses, and the trauma of being let down by a medical professional that you trusted with your wellbeing is extremely devastating for not just the victim but also their loved ones.
