Are you curious about what an orthopaedic surgeon does? It is sometimes difficult to keep all the different medical specialties sorted out. Here’s a definitive explanation:
Orthopaedic surgeons are trained to treat the musuloskeletal system – the bones, muscles, ligaments, and other connective tissue – of the human body. These are what allows the body to move. Degenerative and/or congenital diseases and injuries frequently contribute to the limited mobility and range of motion loss that orthopaedists treat.
