Orthopaedics: Definition, Bone Deformities & Correction Procedures
Human body is an amazing machine which needs absolute coordination between various power centres, vital organs to keep it up and running. The strength and movement of the whole body both internally and externally is dependent on the most fragile structures – bones which are 300 in number at the time of birth eventually fusing into 206 bones in total, as we grow.
The body reaches its peak bone mass by 20s’ but the cushion provided by muscles around bones is not enough to protect these from breaking. Even a miscalculated leap, bending over or a slip can lead to extreme pressure causing a break – fracture, injury both in the muscles and bones.
Bone related health conditions demand timely expert medical care and intervention without which the patient may left crippled, differently abled for rest of the life.

In this procedure, the specialist reconstructs the bone with an external frame or a fixator, by attaching it to the bone with screws and wires.
