Frequently Asked Questions

What is orthopedics?

Orthopedics is a medical specialty dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of various disorders, injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system comprising the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. A doctor who specializes in this medical specialty is called an orthopedic surgeon or orthopedist. Some orthopedic doctors also focus on a specific field of orthopedics, such as pediatrics, sports medicine, or trauma.

Is surgery the only recommended treatment in orthopedics?

Orthopedic treatments include both surgical and non-surgical options. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated without surgery by using medications, physical and occupational therapy, or other alternative therapies. Surgery is recommended only if the patient does not respond to non-invasive treatments.
