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:


A few of the conditions treated by orthopedic surgeons include:


Category Specialties:


While doctors may choose general orthopedic surgery, there are at least a dozen different specialties, a few of which include specialization in specific areas of the body, physical and occupational therapy, trauma, sports medicine, pediatrics, rehabilitation, pain management, and more.

Category Procedures and Treatments:


Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to treat patients. Just a few of these include:

  • Arthroscopy
  • Bone grafting
  • Bone healing
  • Chondroplasty
  • Fusion
  • Internal fixation
  • Joint replacement
  • Laminectomy
  • Osteotomy
  • Pain management
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Soft tissue repair

Category Profession Details:


Orthopedic surgeons must complete a minimum of a Bachelor Degree, followed by 4 years of medical school and 5 years of orthopedic residency. An additional year of education is required for specialties within the field. The orthopedic surgeon needs to pass licensing requirements for the state in which he or she will practice medicine. In order to be certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery orthopedic surgeons must complete all education and training requirement, practice their field for 2 years, then pass the written and oral exams.

Do orthopedic surgeons only treat bones?

Do orthopedic surgeons only use surgery as treatment?
While qualified to perform various surgical procedures, orthopedic surgeons also use nonsurgical and minimally invasive methods to treat patients as well. The least invasive method is typically the first choice in treating patients.

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.
