Arthroscopy is one of the most common surgeries. It minimizes the need to open up a patient to perform surgery. It is mostly used to help heal the knee, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissue tears injuries that happen when an athlete is injured. Another common surgical procedure is Surgical Fusion that is typically done in the spinal area. Usually, there is a diseased disc that requires fusing two or more vertebrae together in order to create more flexibility for the spinal column. Finally, Joint replacements are another common surgical procedure, especially in the knee area. As people get older, the wear and tear on the joins cause pain.
