Orthopaedics is one of the vast branches concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours and congenital disorders. Many developments in orthopaedic surgery helps in correcting of musculoskeletal deformities. Orthopaedic specialists involves in the diagnosis of injury or disorder, treatment with medication, exercise, casting, surgery or other options, rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physical therapy to restore movement, strength and function, prevention with information and treatment plans to prevent injury or slow the progression of disease. Orthopaedists also specializes in certain areas such as the foot and ankle, spine, shoulder, hand, hip or knee. Orthopaedic surgeon takes a history of illness or injury and then do a physical examination; this may be followed by diagnostic studies such as x-rays or blood tests that enables to discuss the diagnosis, enabling to select the best treatment plan so that the patient can live an active and functional life.
Orthopaedic research enables the entire health care system more accessible and effective for patients.

Researching is not measuring. Researching is to find useful answers to interesting questions.
The ability to collect data, to accumulate and transmit information, and to massacre that information until we get the answers we want, has grown exponentially in the past tens of years and will continue to increase explosively. [...] READ MORE
The 2019 novel coronavirus has demanded the need to be socially distanced in insolation (for all the epidemiological reasons that we know and we will not discuss in this text).

Treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures remains controversial. The unsatisfying clinical results after conservative treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures resulted in a reappraisal of the surgical approach. Although the literature generally supports operative treatment of these injuries, there are still certain disorders that may impede wound or bone-healing. [...] READ MORE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most -if not all- elective orthopaedic surgery has been temporarily postponed worldwide. Patients with trauma and musculoskeletal tumors are generally excluded from this general rule. Nonetheless, during this COVID-19 outbreak, patients with primary benign and malignant tumors face the major risk of being unable to receive customary medical services in a timely fashion.

Fatigue is a necessary and measurable part of training and competition, and is considered a possible culprit for injury and performance incompetence. Athlete fatigue is a growing interest in sport, and managing training load and prescribed rest is a priority with support staff. Fatigue is a complex interaction of lifestyle, training, emotional health, and environmental factors. [...] READ MORE
Effectively treating the pain accompanying osteoarthritis, a chronic irreversible progressively disabling joint disease remains extremely challenging. This mini review examines the controversial literature pertaining to: 1) whether vitamin D, a powerful bone-mediating compound involved in many physiological processes can influence the pain experience of people with osteoarthritis, and 2) whether more research in this realm is indicated or not.

Lower limb infections are the most common indication for hospital admission in patients with diabetes. Diabetic foot ulcers are common and can lead to chronic osteomyelitis if not treated well. In the most severe forms of infection, patients are known to develop necrotizing fasciitis and subsequent shock from cardiovascular collapse may ensue. [...] READ MORE
The dual mobility cup was introduced in France in the 1970s by Gilles Bousquet to decrease dislocation rates in high-risk patients. The system acts as a large prosthetic femoral head, allowing grater range of motion within the socket and low dislocation risk. Concerns about intra-prosthetic dislocation and accelerated wear have been emphasized. [...] READ MORE
Many studies have already been conducted investigating proprioceptive deficits in subjects with rupture of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). However, there are few data related using the paradigm of Force Matching Test. Objective of this study was to verify whether there is knee proprioceptive deficit when analyzed ACL-deficient knee with uninjured knee. 22 participants with ACL rupture and 22 participants with healthy knee were.
