What is Orthopedic Medicine?
Orthopedic medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons are often the first professionals called to diagnose and treat bone, joint, muscle, ligament, tendon, and nerve injuries.
Sports medicine on the other hand is the area of medicine that specializes in the care and treatment of athletes. It covers a wide range of issues, from treating sports injuries to helping athletes recover from surgery. Sports medicine physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries. They can also provide advice on how to prevent injuries from happening in the first place.
How Common are Orthopedic Problems?
Orthopedic problems are common. In fact, approximately 31 million people in the United States alone experience orthopedic problems each year. These problems can range from minor to debilitating, and they can occur in any part of the body. Some of the most common orthopedic problems include:
- Back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee pain
- Neck pain
- Rotator cuff tear
- Elbow pain
- Shoulder pain
Elbow and shoulder pain is most common because these are the areas where we use our arms the most. When we use our arms a lot, we can cause wear and tear on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in these areas, which can lead to pain. We also need them for many daily activities, such as eating and dressing, which can make the pain in these areas even more of a problem.
The three most common shoulder pain symptoms are:
- Feeling as if the arm needs to be readjusted.
- An ache deep in the chest.
- Achiness all along the outer edge of the upper arm.
Elbow pain is often characterized by discomfort when you put pressure on your elbow or bend your elbow below a 90-degree angle. You may also feel it in your forearm and hand. More than likely, this type of discomfort occurs when there has been some sort of injury such as overuse like using tools, repetitive motions like throwing or swinging something repeatedly, or underuse such as not doing any physical activity for long periods.
Some people like athletes are more prone to orthopedic issues, because of the constant stress that is put on their joints and muscles. This can cause injuries such as sprains, strains, and fractures. To prevent these injuries, athletes are recommended to go through programs that strengthen their muscles, stretch their joints so they won’t stress as much, and give them the proper equipment if needed.
When is Surgery Needed for Orthopedic Problems?
This is a common question that people have when they are suffering from a problem with the musculoskeletal system. Surgery may be needed to solve orthopedic problems if it can be determined that conservative methods would not solve the problem. Orthopedic surgery will be needed if there is a fracture of a bone, deformity in the parts of the bone, or swelling on the joints. The orthopedic surgeon will need to make sure that all abnormal structures are removed or trimmed before immobilizing and casting these parts.
Most Common Orthopedic Surgeries
- Common orthopedic surgeries include knee surgery, hip surgery, shoulder surgery, and elbow surgery.
- Knee surgery includes arthroscopic procedures, ACL reconstructions, meniscus surgeries.
- Hip surgeries include femoral neck osteotomy (FHO), anterior hip replacement (AHR), posterior hip replacement (PHR).
- Shoulder surgery includes rotator cuff repair, glenohumeral joint reconstruction, biceps tendon repair, labrum surgeries.
- Elbow surgery includes Tommy John surgery, ulnar nerve release, biceps tenodesis or transfer, cubital tunnel decompression.
A good orthopedic surgeon is important because they can help you with a variety of issues related to your bones, joints, and muscles. They can help with everything from sports injuries to arthritis.

Why is Dr. Meier the Best Orthopedic Surgeon in Dubai?
There are many reasons why Dr. Steve Meier is the best orthopedic surgeon. One reason is that he utilizes multiple therapeutic techniques which may include an exercise program, rehabilitation, or minimally invasive surgery. When surgery is necessary, the most current and leading-edge technologies are employed, which typically result in less postoperative pain and faster recovery.
Minimally invasive orthopedic surgery is better because it is less traumatic to the surrounding tissues and has a smaller surgical incision. This leads to a quicker return to activities and a more cosmetic outcome. The use of minimally invasive techniques is especially important in the spine, hip, and knee where surrounding nerves, muscles, and blood vessels are at risk during traditional surgery.
Postoperative therapy will play a crucial role in how quickly you recover after orthopedic surgery. Physical therapy can help avoid any stiffness or other issues that may occur. It also helps decrease your risk of falling, which can be common following surgery. One of the biggest risks to an otherwise successful operation is the development of pressure sores or bed sores. These are often caused by being immobile for too long. Postoperative physical therapy can help you return movement to your body and prevent these processes from occurring.
Dr. Meier will provide the best-orthopedic solution to all of his patients, tailored to their needs. He will look at all aspects of a patient’s life, not just the injured body part and what is causing their pain and suffering, but also where they work and play, how much activity they do each day, and if there are other contributing factors to the injury such as poor ergonomics or nutrition. He will then put together a treatment plan that will not only relieve the pain and get you back to your normal life but also includes a way to prevent it from happening again.
