Hand surgeries are often necessary to treat various conditions and injuries. Carpal tunnel release surgery involves cutting the ligament pressing on the median nerve in the wrist to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome. Trigger finger release surgery involves making a small incision in the palm or finger to release the constricted tendon sheath and allow for smooth finger movement. Fracture repair involves realigning broken bones and stabilizing them with pins, screws, or plates to promote healing and restore function. Tendon repair involves reattaching or suturing torn or damaged tendons to restore proper function and movement. Joint replacement involves removing damaged joint surfaces and replacing them with artificial implants to reduce pain and improve joint function.
These surgeries are usually performed under local or regional anesthesia and do not require an overnight hospital stay.
SHOULDER & KNEE SURGERY
Shoulder and knee surgeries are common orthopedic procedures performed to treat various conditions. Shoulder surgery involves replacing damaged parts of the shoulder joint with prostheses to relieve pain, improve strength, and increase range of motion.
Common reasons for shoulder replacement surgery include osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tear arthropathy, avascular necrosis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to inspect, diagnose, and treat problems inside the joint, such as rotator cuff repair, labrum removal or repair, ligament repair, or removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage.
Knee surgery aims to relieve pain, improve mobility, and restore function by replacing damaged parts of the knee joint with prostheses. Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat knee problems, including meniscus repair, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage repair
SHOULDER & KNEE TRAUMA
Shoulder and elbow injuries are common in the workplace and can be associated with workers' compensation claims. These injuries can result from blunt trauma, falls, or repetitive motions, heavy lifting, and pulling or reaching.
Some of the specific types of shoulder and elbow injuries that may qualify for workers' compensation include fractures, dislocations, rotator cuff tears, bursitis, tendinitis, and epicondylitis. Workers who perform repeated and repetitive lifting can be at risk for elbow and shoulder injuries.
Treatment for these injuries may include physical therapy, medication, injections, or surgery, depending on the severity of the injury.
FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY
Common foot and ankle surgeries aim to correct deformities, restore functionality, and alleviate pain. Surgical techniques for treating bunions include metatarsal osteotomy, which aims to realign the bones. High-quality images of surgery can be found on websites like Unsplash, which offers over 100 free surgery images, and iStockphoto, which offers a collection of 521,700+ surgery stock photos. Foot and ankle injuries commonly associated with workers' compensation claims include broken foot bones, plantar fasciitis, bunions, ankle sprains, and fractures.
Plastic surgery in the context of workers' compensation is primarily associated with injury and wound-related procedures rather than elective cosmetic surgeries. Some of the most common types of plastic surgery covered by workers' compensation include skin grafts, tissue flaps, scar revision, and wound closure. Skin grafts involve transplanting healthy skin to a damaged area to promote healing, while tissue flaps transfer skin, fat, muscle, or bone to reconstruct or repair damaged areas. Scar revision aims to improve the appearance of scars, and wound closure procedures repair and close wounds caused by workplace accidents or injuries
