Orthopaedic surgery is the ‘nuts & bolts’ speciality; it is as much a biomechanical science as it is a surgical craft. In orthopaedics, the mode of treatment and the choice of implants are just as important as the skill to operate precisely to reach a specific anatomical landmark.
The traditional view has been that only the advance trainees in orthopaedics require a good grasp of biomechanics. However, the understanding and application of biomechanics in orthopaedics has expanded exponentially in the recent times, and this plays a much greater role in modern orthopaedic treatments. Accordingly, there have emerged a number of core principles in orthopaedic biomechanics. It is important now that the junior trainees in orthopaedics have an appreciation of the basic biomechanics in orthopaedics in order to flourish in this surgical specialty.
