Preparing for Orthopedic Surgery

by Stephanie Meadows
Orthopedic surgeons specialize in treating pain, diseases, and injuries pertaining to the musculoskeletal system (joints, bones, muscles, tendons, and connective tissue). These doctors play a critical role in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions. They work in both hospitals and specialized practices to treat infections, sports injuries, broken bones, joint problems (e.g., arthritis), congenital conditions, degenerative conditions (e.g., osteoporosis), and bone tumors.

The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint, which has an incredible range of motion. Unfortunately, it is also very prone to injury due to its anatomy, along with how frequently it is used. The shoulder can become weak and vulnerable due to wear and tear, become completely dislocated due to an accident such as a fall, or can suffer the effects associated with repetitive stress injury. The joint where the upper bone (humerus) of the arm meets the shoulder (scapula and acromion) is called the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is where most shoulder injuries occur. To better understand the different parts of the shoulder, we also need to understand how this part of the body can become injured.
