Who is an Orthopedist?

Orthopedists are doctors who examine all bones, muscles, nerves, and joints and diagnose and treat diseases. They can operate, but they’re also trained to diagnose and treat problems with non-surgical methods. Orthopedists are experts in their field. Generally, an orthopedist is referred to you by your family doctor. Therefore, your physician can advise you on the sort of orthopedist you should visit for your problem.

Why See an Orthopedic Surgeon?

The most frequent reason patients visit an orthopedic doctor is for pain in a joint, muscle, or bone, as well as any physical movement problem. So you should consult an orthopedic surgeon if your body hurts, or is stiff, or if you have an injury to your joints, bones, muscles, or ligaments.
