A local orthopedic surgeon is a doctor who treats conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, nerves, joints, ligaments and tendons. Some of the procedures that a local orthopedic surgeon may perform include knee and hip replacements, MCL and ACL repair surgery, ankylosing spondylosis surgery and various soft tissue repair procedures. The right nutrition can help you recover from surgery, so it could be beneficial to work with a local registered dietitian or nutritionist. By eating a diet that’s rich in protein, vegetables and fruits and healthy fats, you can heal your body after your orthopedic surgery.
