A variety of orthopedic procedures are performed with regularity on patients in Australia, throughout the Commonwealth, and around the world. Orthopedic procedures commonly are performed to address different types of arthritic conditions.
These types of procedures can be performed on different parts of a person’s body, depending on the nature and extent of their arthritic condition. These types of procedures are becoming more common as an increasing number of Baby Boomers age.
Another type of orthopedic procedure is joint replacement surgery. One of the most common types of procedure in this category is hip replacement surgery. Some of these procedures are planned and undertaken on a more proactive basis. On the other hand, many of these types of surgeries occur because of a traumatic event or accident.
Many people require orthopedic procedures because of repetitive use injuries. A prime example of this type of procedure is surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. A considerable number of people in Australia, and elsewhere around the world, have this type of procedure each year.
A leading orthopedic surgeon in practice in Australia is Greg Finch. Finch is a distinguished member of FRACS. FRACS means Finch is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. A person like Finch who receives this important designation has undergone a significant course of specialized study.
Finch is also a member of the Spine Society of Australia and the North American Spine Society. He is is a member of the Australian Orthopedic Association.
Prior to becoming a part of FRACS, Finch was associated with internationally leading surgeons. These were surgeons who specialize in spine surgery. Finch worked with surgeons in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.
Finch primarily focuses on noninvasive spinal surgical procedures. With that noted, he also undertakes more traditional surgical procedures on behalf of his patients as well.
