Overview of Microscopic Orthopaedics
Microsurgery refers to the surgical techniques for operations with fine surgical instruments and materials under optical amplification equipment (surgical magnifying glass or surgical microscope). Exposure to the amplified surgical field has made a breakthrough which surmounts the natural limit of human’s vision, transforming a macroscopic view into a microcosmic world. This makes surgeries more accurate and exquisite, reduces tissue injuries, and facilitates tissue healing, greatly improving the quality and outcomes of surgeries. The scope of surgical treatment has also been expanded because the surgeries which would be impossible in the past under naked eyes can be conducted when tiny structures can be easily identified and manipulations can be precisely fulfilled with the aid of amplifier equipment.
