An orthopedic surgeon is a physician dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of injuries, disorders and diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and tendons.
Orthopedic surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system. However, many orthopedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, hand, shoulder and elbow, spine, hip or knee. Orthopedic surgeons may also choose to focus on specific fields like trauma, joint replacement, or sports medicine.
By the time they start practicing, orthopedic surgeons have completed approximately 14 years of formal education and training. It is important to visit orthopedic surgeons who are board certified. To become board certified, an orthopedic surgeon must undergo a peer-review process, and then demonstrate his/her expertise in orthopedics by passing both oral and written examinations given by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.
