A majority of orthopedic procedures, specifically orthopedic surgeries, are complicated and delicate. It is vital for the orthopedic surgeon to have an in-depth understanding of the underlying anatomy and physical structures.

They should be able to develop an individualized surgical plan that can offer the patient safe results in a precise and less invasive way.

The surgeon should seek to minimize risks and adopt a conservative treatment approach while focusing on accomplishing sustainable benefits of movement, function, and pain relief for the patient.
