Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Some orthopaedic surgeons are generalists, while others specialize in certain areas of the body, such as:

  • Hip and knee
  • Foot and ankle
  • Shoulder and elbow
  • Hand
  • Spine

What does an orthopaedic surgeon treat?

  • Sports injuries
  • Back pain, ruptured disks and spinal stenosis
  • Bone tumors
  • Carpal tunnel, hand arthritis and hand injuries
  • Club foot, bow legs and hip dysplasia
  • Orthopaedic trauma
  • Achilles tendon injuries, bunions and foot and ankle injuries
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis
