In recent years, the fields of orthopedic medicine have undergone a real revolution. Many years of research in both the fields of technology and the fields of orthopedics have changed our entire method of looking at medicine, including the field of orthopedics. Want to know what has changed? Keep reading
Development and named technology
We are constantly hearing about "new technological developments". One of the developments that is particularly relevant to the field of medicine is Technology Which allows for peak accuracy with minimum intrusion. In some cases it is a nano-Technology (Dwarf technology: In one millimeter a million nanometers enter - you will do the math 😊), In other cases it is a technology that enables the production of unique materials, and the bottom line - the technology grips Western medicine tightly. Today, wherever we look in the field of medicine - from head to toe, including everything along the way - passes through Technology. And as the use of a particular technology becomes routine in a particular field, the more likely it is that it will become usable in other fields as well. However, as technology improves, so do some of the major shortcomings of Western medicine. As far as we have been able to advance in almost every field of medicine, thousands of patients a year still die in hospitals around the world from infections obtained during simple surgery with zero mortality rates. This is why today the preference is, as a rule, to avoid surgeries.
Danger and called surgery
Surgeries have always had limitations. For example, anyone who knows someone who has had cancer knows that one of the important questions is how far it has spread, since the more it spreads the less likely it is that surgery will be successful. On the other hand, even surgeries of one tumor may be non-surgical - that is, the chances of mortality or recovery from surgery are so low that it is worth giving up, whatever the price may be. Radiation is one of the technological developments that make it possible to continue fighting cancer without surgery. However, technology also saves much less scary surgeries, for much easier problems. For example, once upon a time, for treating an orthopedic problem like flatulence, surgery was a better option. Today, with the knowledge of the problematic nature of the surgeries on the one hand, and the technological developments that enable precise custom-made orthopedic insoles on the other hand - the conservative solution is actually a reference to Insole And not for surgery. Why? One reason is that insole awareness has gone up, but the bottom line is that their accuracy has gone up. Once, they installed insoles on a plaster cast that imprinted on the patient's foot, the plaster cast was sent to the factory, and there the insoles were installed on the mold. Just what? This way there is a lot of room for error, and the difference between near-perfect accuracy and perfect accuracy is huge. Today, with computerized technology scanning, it is possible to install perfectly customized insoles, and more and more orthopedic, podiatrists and other doctors are finding insoles as a better solution than surgery for a variety of orthopedic problems.
Technology also within surgery
When surgery is unavoidable, today procedures are used with a minimum of invasiveness - "Minimum Invasive" - where the goal is to reach a maximum level of accuracy, so that no part of the body that is not related to surgery will undergo trauma. In the past, any heart surgery required a chest opening, and as frightening as it sounds, the risks are alarming, respectively. The risks of infections in this type of surgery are high. By the way, if there is no evidence that technology continues to evolve and improve medicine on a daily basis get it in Corona. No, we are not talking about vaccines, but disinfection. The corona has greatly raised the awareness of disinfection, and moreover raised the level at which we are able to disinfect. Will these disinfections prevent death from unnecessary infection in hospitals? It is highly doubtful that they will be able to prevent them altogether, but reducing the number is also a goal worth fighting for.
