Orthopedic surgery is performed on the bones and joints of the body. While hips and knees are the most common procedures, almost any joint in the body can be operated on. Shoulders and ankles are considered specialized joints surgeons who specialize in this area. The most common reasons for orthopedic surgery are traumatic injury and osteoarthritis, ongoing joint damage from arthritis, as well as spine and back issues caused by injury, disc degeneration or stenosis.
