Who is an Orthopaedic Surgeon?
Orthopaedic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries and disorders related to the musculoskeletal system. They have extensive training and expertise in the management of a wide range of conditions that affect bones, joints, muscles and soft tissues.
Orthopaedic surgeons and bone specialists use a variety of techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders. They may use imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds to help diagnose the underlying cause of the patient’s symptoms.
They may also perform minimally invasive surgical procedures or more complex surgeries to repair or replace damaged joints, bones or other tissues.
