Orthopedic surgery focuses on conditions that involve the muscles and skeleton in the human body. It refers to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions, disorders, and injuries of the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Orthopedic surgeons may, however, also use nonsurgical approaches to treat orthopedic problems. At Junomedical we partner with the most experienced orthopedic surgeons around the world. These specialists perform procedures for up to 80% less than the average cost in the U.K., U.S., and Australia. The cost of the treatment depends on the general health of the patient as well as the type and complexity of the procedure. After examining your medical history the specialist will provide you with a treatment plan and price quote. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of surgeons, many of whom attained their medical qualifications from UK and US medical schools, have won awards, and are members of prestigious associations.
Orthopedic surgery can be used to treat everything from minor issues like a sprained ankle to complex procedures like a hip replacement. As well as sports injuries, sprains and broken bones, orthopedic surgery can effectively treat infections, bone tumors, spine diseases, congenital conditions, joint problems like arthritis, and degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. The most commonly performed orthopedic surgeries include knee replacement, hip replacement, shoulder replacement, carpal tunnel release, spine surgery, construction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the major stabilizing ligament of the knee. Artificial joints have a lifespan of 10 to 20 years so if you undergo joint replacement surgery and you lead a very active life or you are obese you will likely need another replacement later in life.
