Orthopaedic Surgery FAQs

An orthopaedic doctor specialises in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders through non-surgical treatments, while an orthopaedic surgeon is a medical doctor who can provide non-surgical treatments and perform surgery on bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons to treat patients.

During your initial visit, the orthopaedic surgeon will collect a thorough medical history, perform a physical exam, and may order imaging tests like X-rays for further evaluation. This visit is an opportunity for the doctor to understand your health, lifestyle, and symptoms while establishing a treatment plan.

Preparing for orthopaedic surgery involves following your surgeon’s instructions, which may include fasting before surgery, stopping certain medications, and arranging for post-operative care. Our team will guide you through the pre-surgery preparations to ensure a smooth experience.

Like any surgical procedure, orthopaedic surgery carries risks such as infection, blood clots, nerve injury and anaesthesia complications. Our surgeons prioritise patient safety and will discuss the potential risks and benefits with you before proceeding with any treatment.

The time it takes to return to normal activities after orthopaedic surgery depends on the type of procedure, your overall health, and adherence to rehabilitation protocols. Our orthopaedic specialists will create a personalised recovery plan to help you regain function and mobility at a safe pace.
