Topic: pathological conditions
Describe and discuss one disease, pathological condition or surgical procedure tied to the musculoskeletal system. For example, one may want to discuss tendonitis or examine the topic of total knee replacement. Also, artificial limbs, bones and tendons may be of interest.
Please include the process of diagnosing the disease or condition.
If you choose a surgical procedure, discuss why this procedure is beneficial versus a more conservative approach.
With any topic, you must include treatment for the disease or condition and information about post-surgical rehabilitation (including goals of physical therapy if needed). You must also include the prognosis of the patient with the disease or the prognosis of the patient after surgery.
