-discectomy: a surgery that removes a herniated disc in your cervical spine

-neck surgery: there are multiple types of neck surgeries, most commonly discectomies, but there are also corpectomies and foraminotomies
Shoulder
– sprain: an injury to a shoulder joint, caused by the ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– strain: the tear of a shoulder muscle caused by a ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– fracture: the break in the continuity of a bone, usually the result of impact or stress
-arthroplasty: an orthopedic surgery where the surface of a joint is replaced or realigned and is done to relieve pain, often from arthritis or injury
– rotator cuff tear: a tear in one or more of the four rotator cuff muscle tendons, indicated by pain which may be felt immediately or develop gradually over time.
– rotator cuff surgery: performed when conservative treatment for a rotator cuff tear is insufficient, this surgery reattaches the torn tendons
– capsular shift: tightening of the shoulder capsule
– frozen shoulder: also known as adhesive capsulitis, the shoulder capsule becomes inflamed and stiff, restricting motion and creating chronic pain
– bicep detachment or rupture: an injury in which the biceps tendon becomes separated from the bone and can occur at the shoulder joint (proximal) or around the elbow joint (distal).
Arm
– Sprain: an injury to an arm joint, caused by the ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– strain: the tear of an arm muscle caused by a ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– cubital tunnel syndrome: a condition where the ulnar nerve is trapped or pinched along outer the edge of the elbow, and symptoms include tingling sensations in the fingers
– amputation: the removal or loss of all or part of your arm
Hand
– Carpal Tunnel syndrome: when the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, causing pain and numbness in the wrist and fingers
– fracture: the break in the continuity of a bone in your hand, usually the result of impact or stress
– hardware: surgery to remove hardware that was put in place by a previous surgery to aid healing
– triangular fibrocartilage: an injury to the complex of ligaments connecting the two lower arm bones by the wrist
Foot
-fracture: the break in the continuity of a bone in your foot, usually the result of impact or stress
-sprain: an injury to a foot joint, caused by the ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
Head
-closed head injury: a traumatic brain injury in which the skull and dura mater remain intact. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, or even loss of consciousness or seizures.
-Brain injuries: these can include various types of hemorrhages, cerebral contusions or lacerations, edemas, and others.
Body
-Hernia: the protrusion of an organ or the outer layer of tissue of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it, and they most commonly occur in the abdomen.
-Spinal cord injuries: injuries that inhibit the spinal cord’s ability to send signals by damaging extensions of or parts of nerve cells and can cause paralysis when severe
-Hip: hip injuries are varied, and can include strains, bursitis, dislocations, and fractures
Knee
– sprain: an injury to a knee joint, caused by the ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– strain: the tear of a knee muscle caused by a ligament being stretched beyond its capacity
– torn meniscus: the rupturing of one or both of the two fibrocartilage strips in the knee that are called menisci, and it can be caused by regular activities like squatting or walking, but also by a traumatic twist to the knee or force
– torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL): the ligament tears when it is overstretched and can cause knee instability
– debridement: the medical removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue to allow healthy tissue to heal better
– Total knee replacement: also known as knee arthroplasty, this surgery replaces the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint in order to relieve pain and allow better function
– arthroscopic surgery: also known as arthroscopy, this minimally invasive surgery treats and/or examines the damage of the interior of a joint, commonly used to repair torn menisci and ACLs
– Patellar (kneecap) fracture: the breaking of the bone on the front of your knee joint, patellar fractures are usually caused by a direct blow to the knee
