Orthopedic surgery or Orthopedics, also spelled Orthopaedics, is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system.
Orthopedic surgeons are doctors who specialize in the musculoskeletal system - the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that are so essential to movement and daily living. They use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
