Your Guide on Orthopaedic Surgeons, Orthopaedics & Orthopaedic Surgery
Orthopaedic surgeons are MDs or DOs in the USA and MBBSs in the United Kingdom, and generally have five to seven years of advanced postgraduate training and may serve a fellowship for training in any of several sub-specialty areas, such as sports medicine, traumatology, reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, foot & ankle surgery, spine surgery, rheumatological surgery, pediatric orthopaedics, or geriatric orthopaedics.
Orthopaedic surgeons treat patients using surgical and non-surgical methods to correct problems. Orthopaedic surgeons work closely with many allied health professionals, such as athletic trainers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical medicine & rehabilitation physcians and other physicians in related fields in the treatment of patients.
