There are many types of orthopedic procedures. Hand surgery focuses on conditions of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Those who conduct hand surgery may address several conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist pain, arthritis, or sporting injuries. Pediatric orthopedics focuses on the needs of children and young infants. This does not always include surgery, but any fractures, dislocations, or inflammation associated with the child’s joints and limbs. There has been an increase in sports-related injuries affecting children, so the amount of pediatric orthopedic conditions are on the rise. Sports orthopedics focus on the surgical treatment of sporting-related injuries, including musculoskeletal problems. Other conditions that orthopedic surgeons focus on are the need for knee and hip replacements. This need is expected to rise as the number of people in the Baby Boomer generation become senior citizens.
