Conditions Treated

Orthopedic physicians complete medical school and then undergo specific training in orthopedics (also spelled as orthopaedics, using the Greek spelling).  While orthopedic physicians are trained to treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system with surgery, they also offer a variety of diagnostic services as well as nonsurgical options. The musculoskeletal system includes the skeleton (bones) and the muscles, tendons, cartilage, joints and connective tissue that allow the bones to move.
