What is Orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is the medical field dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, nerves, and muscles.

Common surgical procedures include total joint (hip, knee and shoulder) replacements and revisions as well as hip resurfacing which is a joint preservation surgery that is designed to optimize joint function and prevent or delay the need for joint replacement.
