What is Orthopedics?

 

Orthopedics is the specialty that manages the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal issues: conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Each part of the musculoskeletal system is essential for your physical activity. Orthopedic specialists can treat chronic joint pain, traumatic and repetitive injuries, back pain, arthritis, and a host of other conditions.

When you would be referred to an orthopedic doctor?

Many people wonder if they should visit an orthopedic specialist or go to their primary care doctor. There are some specific times that it may speed recovery time to visit the orthopedist directly. Anytime that there is a suspected traumatic or repetitive motion injury to a bone, joint, tendon or nerve, an orthopedic doctor is your best choice for treatment.

 

If the patient is experiencing chronic joint or bone pain, due to degenerative and/or traumatic event, seeing an orthopedic specialist at our international medical clinic is probably the right approach.
