    Orthopedic Surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with acute, chronic, traumatic, overuse and other disorders of the bones, joints and muscles. These doctors perform surgery on joints such as shoulders, knees and hips, including artificial replacements for these joints. Orthopedic surgeons who specialize in back problems may perform surgery on the spine. When choosing an orthopedic surgeon for your particular issue, be sure to check his or her profile for Professional Interests or Fellowship training in the area of your concern - or inquire when you call the physician's office about special areas of focus, such as hip replacements or shoulder repair.

    Orthopedists - non-surgical are specialists who treat bones, joints and muscles but do not perform surgery.
