People use their musculoskeletal system to perform daily activities. The musculoskeletal system controls the movement of the human body. This system includes bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system cause severe pain and loss of quality of life. There is a notable surgeon, Greg Finch, who uses specialty procedures to treat the diseases and injuries.
Dr. Greg Finch
Greg Finch is an orthopedic surgeon. He specializes in treating diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. He fulfilled training at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). He earned the prestigious honor of Fellow of the Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). Additionally, he has worked with prominent surgeons from the US, UK, and Germany. Some of the procedures that he performs include:
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS)
MISS is a specialty area for Greg Finch. He uses unique types of instruments to make small incisions to access the spine. This procedure helps to see the exact location of the injury or disease in the spine. It prevents injury to nearby muscles and other parts of the spine. As a result, there is minimal pain and bleeding. After receiving MISS, the patient will have a shorter hospital stay.
Total Joint Replacement
This surgical procedure removes a joint that has a disease, damage, and pain. The surgeon replaces the joint with a prosthesis, which is made out of metal or a plastic material. After recovery, the patient is able to use the new joint as usual.
Total Shoulder Replacement
This procedure involves treating a shoulder fracture or osteoarthritis. These issues cause stiffness and pain. The surgeon removes and replaces a part of the shoulder with an implant. Patients are usually able to go home within 3 days after surgery. They will need rehabilitation and pain management during recovery.
