Special Issue Description

The area of surgery that deals with musculoskeletal problems are known as orthopedic surgery or orthopedics. Orthopedic surgeons treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine problems, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, cancers, and congenital disorders using both surgical and nonsurgical techniques. The majority of orthopedic operations are either done traditionally or with the use of an arthroscope. Open surgery is occasionally required, however, these two situations account for the bulk of cases. Compared to arthroscopic techniques, traditional surgery is more invasive and frequently results in noticeably longer recovery times since incisions are made to the affected body areas. The most common types of orthopedic surgeries are Hip replacement surgery, Knee replacement or arthroscopic surgery, Shoulder and rotator cuff surgery, Hand and wrist surgery, and ACL surgery. In this special issue, which intends to provide a brief understanding of orthopedic surgery, degenerative diseases, orthopedic implants, and trauma care, we encourage you to submit your research findings.
