    What does an Orthopedic Surgeon do?

    Orthopedic surgeons examine patients, diagnose conditions, and treat diseases or injuries related to the musculoskeletal system. They help patient’s bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and joints function properly so they can have a full range of motion without any pain. This can transform the lives of patients that are living with chronic pain and injuries. With over 206 bones in the body, there are many things that can go wrong, causing pain and limiting someone’s daily activities. It is important to see a specialist, rather than a general practitioner, as they have the most knowledge in how to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions.

    Orthopedic surgeons are most known for their activities in the sports medicine field, but they treat people of all ages and abilities. Areas like rehabilitation have a vast impact on the elderly that are frequently undergoing things like hip replacements.
