What is Orthopedics?
Orthopedic practitioners specialize in diagnosis and treatment of problems of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. The word “orthopedics” comes from the Greek words “ortho” meaning straight and “pais” meaning children. For many centuries, orthopedists have been involved in the treatment of crippled children. Over the years the field has expanded to encompass many subspecialties and the treatment of a wide variety of musculoskeletal disorders in patients of all ages.
