What is Orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is a medical speciality that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves, which work together to provide support, stability, and movement to the body. Orthopaedics also involves the rehabilitation of patients who have undergone orthopaedic surgeries or have suffered from musculoskeletal injuries.

Who is an Orthopaedician?

An orthopaedician is a medical specialist who has completed rigorous education and training in orthopaedics. They are trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent musculoskeletal disorders, including sports injuries, fractures, arthritis, back pain, and spinal cord injuries. Orthopedicians may work in hospitals, clinics, or private chambers and may collaborate with other healthcare professionals such as physical therapists and sports medicine specialists.

When Should You Consult an Orthopaedician?

It is important to consult an orthopedician if you experience any of the following symptoms:
• Joint pain or swelling
• Limited range of motion
• Muscle weakness or atrophy
• Fractures or dislocations
• Sports injuries
• Back pain or spinal cord injuries
• Arthritis or osteoporosis
• Congenital musculoskeletal disorders

If left untreated, musculoskeletal disorders can lead to severe disability and chronic pain. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention promptly.

• Fractures and dislocations

• Congenital musculoskeletal disorders, such as clubfoot and scoliosis
• Bone tumours and infections
• Joint replacements, such as knee and hip replacements

• Arthroscopy: A minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat joint problems
• Joint replacement surgery: A procedure to replace a damaged joint with a prosthetic joint
• Spinal surgery: A procedure to correct spinal deformities or injuries
• Fracture repair: A procedure to stabilize a broken bone with screws, pins, or plates

With their expertise and dedication, orthopaedicians help patients regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve their quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an orthopedician and an orthopaedic surgeon?

An orthopaedician is a medical specialist who diagnoses, treats and prevents musculoskeletal disorders, while an orthopaedic surgeon is a medical specialist who performs surgical procedures on the musculoskeletal system.

During your first visit, your orthopaedician will perform a physical exam, review your medical history, and may order diagnostic tests such as X-rays or MRI scans. They will then provide a diagnosis and treatment plan based on your specific condition.

Yes, many musculoskeletal disorders can be treated with non-surgical interventions such as physical therapy, medications, and lifestyle modifications. Surgery is typically reserved for more severe cases or when conservative treatments are ineffective.

The recovery time from orthopaedic surgery varies depending on the specific procedure and individual patient factors. It can range from a few weeks to several months, and it may involve physical therapy or rehabilitation.

Orthopedicians treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including fractures, arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and congenital disorders.

Many orthopaedic problems can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight, engaging in regular exercises, and wearing appropriate footwear.

Your orthopedician will determine if surgery is necessary based on the severity of your condition, the extent of damage, and whether conservative treatments have been effective.

While general practitioners may be able to provide initial treatment for sports injuries, it is often beneficial to see a specialist such as an orthopedician or sports medicine physician for more specialized care.
