Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics (alternatively name Orthopedic surgery or orthopaedic surgery) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Orthopaedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system, which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves and allows you to move, work, and be active.

Once devoted to the care of  spine and limb deformities, orthopaedists now care for patients of all ages, from newborns with clubfeet to young athletes requiring arthroscopic surgery to older people with arthritis. And anybody can break a bone.

You may be referred to a trauma and orthopaedic consultant for treatment of an injury such as a bone fracture, a deformity of the spine or limbs, or a long-term condition that's developed over many years, such as osteoarthritis.

Orthopaedic specialists treat people of all ages, including:

1. newborns and children with deformities – such as congenital dislocation of the hip, club foot and scoliosis
2. young people who need joint preserving surgery – such as arthroscopic surgery or osteotomy (see below)
3. older people with irreversible degenerative joint problems – who need their joints replacing

Orthopaedic specialists

Most consultants who work in trauma and orthopaedics provide emergency and non-emergency care for musculoskeletal injuries following an initial assessment in accident and emergency (A&E).

They may:

1. diagnose injuries or disorders using X-rays, blood tests or other tests
2. treat injuries or conditions with medication or surgery
3. recommend exercises or physiotherapy to restore movement, strength and functionality

Most orthopaedic consultants also have a specialist interest. This may be a particular orthopaedic condition, a specific area of the body, or a field such as paediatrics or sport surgery.
