Orthopedic Surgeon Info

Orthopedic Surgeon Summary:
An orthopedic surgeon works with patients before, during, and after surgical procedures that involve problems with the musculoskeletal system, such as hips and knees. An orthopedic surgeon is a surgical specialist. These surgeons diagnose and treat injuries, diseases, and congenital defects that may affect not only the bones and joints, but nerves, muscles, and connective tissues as well. An orthopedic surgeon can help with arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery and can also help with intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET). While an orthopedic surgeon does perform surgical procedures, these doctors also use nonsurgical interventions when possible to treat patients.

Category Conditions Treated:

Do orthopedic surgeons only use surgery as treatment?

Why would orthopedic surgeons need to specialize in one part of the body if they only treat certain issues?
The musculoskeletal system is complex, requiring extensive focus to properly heal these areas. Also, with 206 bones in the human body, each bone has a specific function and different connective tissue issues. For example, there are 27 bones in the hand, and 26 bones in the foot. That is a lot for an orthopedic surgeon with a specialty in one of these areas to focus on.
