What is Geriatric Orthopedics?

A subspecialty of orthopedic medicine known as "geriatric orthopedics" treats musculoskeletal problems in senior citizens, usually those 65 years of age and older. Many orthopedic disorders, including osteoarthritis, fractures, joint degeneration, and osteoporosis, can impair a person's mobility and quality of life as they age. Specialists in geriatric orthopedics are educated to recognize the special difficulties associated with age, taking into account elements such as frailty, bone density, and concurrent medical disorders. Their methodology entails thorough evaluations, customized therapy regimens, and an emphasis on improving functional independence. Geriatric orthopedics strives to improve mobility, reduce pain, and enhance overall musculoskeletal health in older adults by utilizing a combination of conservative measures, rehabilitative techniques, and surgical interventions when needed. This promotes an active and independent lifestyle in older adults.
