Orthopedic surgery is the branch of medicine which focuses on conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Surgeons treat these conditions with both nonsurgical and surgical means.
What It Is
Orthopedic surgeons treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. This includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves that allow you to move, work and be active.
Why It Is Done
Orthopedic surgeons manage problems of the musculoskeletal system by diagnosing the injury or disorder and then treating the condition. We direct your care as needed during all stages of treatment including medication, exercises, injections, surgery, or other treatment plans.

The Invictus Healthcare Patient Process
Non-operative evaluation and treatment are usually done in the Invictus Healthcare offices. Office procedure examples include cast and splint application, injections into the shoulder, hip and knee, and/or specialized bracing.
Surgeons perform numerous types of surgery. Some of the more common procedures include the following: arthroscopy by using special cameras and equipment to visualize and treat problems inside a joint, internal fixation which holds broken pieces of bone in the proper position with metal plates, pins or screws while the bone is healing, Joint replacement which can be partial, total or revision to correct an arthritic or damaged joint by replacing it with an artificial joint called a prosthesis, and soft tissue repair which includes mending of soft tissue such as torn tendons or ligaments.
