What is an Orthopedic Doctor or Surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon is a specialized physician that is educated, trained, and experienced in the diagnosis and preoperative, operative, and postoperative treatment of the musculoskeletal system, such as, bones, joints, nerves, etc…  Most times individuals who are involved in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents or work accidents injure bones or joints.  For instance, a person, who was in a car crash, may hurt their knee.  The knee injury could be a fracture of a bone or a tear of ligaments or tendons.  This person would most likely be referred to an orthopedic surgeon for a proper diagnosis and a treatment plan that may consist of preoperative treatment (i.e., physical therapy), operative treatment (i.e, surgery) and postoperative treatment.
