Orthopedics is the study of the musculoskeletal system.  A person that was involved in an accident may require surgery. Orthopedic surgeons are specialists who care for injuries of bones, joints and muscles. These specialists examine and perform surgical procedures that include total knee and hip joint replacements, arthroscopy, spinal and back surgery, foot and ankle surgery, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery.

While most people would associate orthopedic surgery as a service provided by a hospital, many surgeons perform services in clinics and centers. Orthopedic surgeons typically perform a wide variety of different procedures and organizations such as the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery offer certification for different specialties.

The majority of orthopedic procedures occur in an out-patient center. The day of the surgery you should make sure to show up on time. Most centers scheduled procedures throughout the day and if you arrive late you may be forced to reschedule your appointment for another day. If you were sent to the center by another physician, it’s a good idea you bring all paperwork, forms, lab reports and x-rays in case the center doesn’t already have them.

The day of the surgery you will first meet with an anesthesiologist. During your meeting you should inform the anesthesiologist if you are taking prescription drugs and/or believe you are pregnant. The anesthesiologist is responsible for evaluating the patient, consulting with the surgical team, administering anesthesia before the procedure and managing the patient after the procedure.

After the procedure is complete you will be monitored by staff. You will likely meet with a nurse and provided with post operation instructions on medications and therapy. The surgeon or staff member will typically be in contact with you a few days after the surgery to find out how you are recovering and to answer any questions you have.

When a person is involved in a severe accident it may require surgery from an orthopedic surgeon. When you begin evaluating orthopedic surgeons you should always make sure they are in good standing with a certification board.
