Orthopaedic Surgeons

Orthopaedic surgeons are responsible for examining, diagnosing and treating conditions with the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal conditions associated with trauma/fracture care, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.  As a result of their broad range of treatments, orthopedic surgery is a very popular solution for most patients. In fact, orthopedic surgeons perform an average of 32 orthopedic procedures each month.

According to the latest statistics available by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, more than one in four Americans has a musculoskeletal impairment.  Orthopaedic conditions may affect a range from those who are very athletic to those who may be suffering from carpal tunnel due to sedentary lifestyles.
