Orthopedics and the Musculoskeletal System

Orthopedics is the medical specialty of treatment of the musculoskeletal system.

The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves. Orthopedic doctors will care for patients of all ages from newborn babies to the very elderly.

The musculoskeletal system can be thought of as the framework for our body and the mechanics that make it function. The reality is, that just about every medical specialty has some overlap with orthopedics and the musculoskeletal system.

Three Things to Know About Orthopedics

  • Orthopedic conditions are the most common reason people seek medical care, although not every patient with an orthopedic condition is seen by an orthopedic specialist.
  • The Greek word ‘ortho’ means straight and ‘pedics’ comes from the word ‘pais’ meaning child. For many centuries, orthopedists have been involved in the treatment of crippled children. One of conditions orthopedists have treated for centuries is scoliosis in children.
  • It takes just over a decade of schooling and training after college to become an orthopedic surgeon. Becoming an orthopedic specialist takes a little time. But even after a decade of training, many surgeons further sub-specialize within orthopedics.
