Many orthopedic procedures, especially orthopedic surgeries, are intricate and complex.
The operating surgeon should have a detailed understanding of the anatomical structures involved and should be able to develop an individualized surgical plan that can create predictable results in a less invasive and precise manner.
The doctor should adopt a conservative treatment approach and minimize the risks involved while accomplishing sustainable benefits of function, mobility, and relief from pain for the patient.
