Many people experience pain due to the deterioration or disruption of their bones or surrounding tissues. This could be caused by an illness, an injury or aging. Some of the most common orthopedic procedures include a process called arthroscopy. This procedure involves a scope that allows the doctor to see into the affected areas of the body in order to provide better treatment. Soft tissue repair is another common procedure that involves the ligaments and tendons connected to the bone. Many athletes experience what is known as a torn ligament when their joint moves in an unnatural manner. The most common orthopedic procedure involving bones is a joint replacement, where the affected bone is removed and replaced with an artificial structure.
