Reconstructing the Musculoskeletal System
The musculoskeletal system is a rather specific area of the body encompassing many different kinds of tissues and structures. In reconstructive surgery, the surgeon might have to restore a variety of elements including tendons, ligaments, soft tissues (i.e. synovium), bone, or joints.
In most cases, reconstructive surgery is necessary if the patient has significant pain in a joint or if the patient has suffered a serious injury that has impacted the musculoskeletal system.
For instance, some degenerative diseases, like some types of arthritis, can cause the cartilage around the joint to wear away, which can result in extreme pain when the patient’s bones grind together. Also, in the case of a serious injury, damage to the body can cause tendons or ligaments to snap.
Whether you need reconstructive surgery immediately, or in an emergency situation, we can help you find the appropriate surgeon. Additionally, our physical therapists will be ready and waiting to help you recover once the surgery is complete.
