What is orthopaedic surgery?
Orthopaedic surgery includes surgery to bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. Delays in diagnosis of a fracture, delays in treatment or an operation performed negligently can result in further injury which may require further surgery. An increase in recovery time and prolonged pain can lead to a less successful or incomplete recovery.
