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.

Measuring Flexor Digitorum Superficialis (FDS) length can provide information regarding functional gripping, forearm muscle power, and possibly risk of injury. To our knowledge, no study has previously investigated measuring FDS length. [...] READ MORE
In recent decades’ American higher education has undergone a paradigm shift. Moving from an “instructional” paradigm to the “learning”-based paradigm (emphasizes the active process of learning on behalf to the students, while envisioning the institution itself as a learner). [...] READ MORE
Posterosuperior massive irreparable rotator cuff tear remains one of most challenging pathologies faced by clinical surgeons, typically affecting patients with re-tear after an attempted repair, and there is no expert consensus on the standard treatment method. [...] READ MORE
Hip fractures, which remain an immense public health concern, have been subject to study and prevention efforts for many years, but with limited success in averting either incident, second or subsequent hip fractures. [...] READ MORE
My research about etiology of idiopathic scoliosis started in 1984, but the etiology and the rules and principles of new therapy have been described in 1995 - 2007. In orthopedic literature, the term Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is used very often and I use it also in my article [1-69]. [...] READ MORE
Fracture fixation with various types of implants is one of the most common procedures in Orthopaedic practice. This is intended for osteosynthesis and improvement in function after musculoskeletal injury is diagnosed. Internal fixation of fractures is often regarded as a balance between the biology of the injured tissue and the mechanical properties of the device used for fixation . [...] READ MORE

We present the case of 4 adult subjects exhibiting asymmetry of the lateral atlantodental interval (within the accepted standard ranges of normal asymmetry equal or under 2mm) on open mouth x-ray examination. The asymmetry was clearly ameliorated after the Atlasprofilax procedure. Improvements in atlas tilt and axis spinous process deviation also were demonstrated. [...] READ MORE
Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) are a group of hereditary muscular dystrophy that primarily affect skeletal muscle, leading to progressive muscular weakness. Among LGMD, autosomal dominant forms are relatively rare and represent about 10% of reported cases. Classification of LGMD is complex, based upon specific mutations. Currently, there are 6 reported families world- wide with LGMD with mutations in heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein D like (HNRPNDL) gene. [...] READ MORE
