What is Orthopedics?
Orthopedics is a medical specialty that encompasses injuries and illnesses that affect the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and other tissues that make up the musculoskeletal system. These structures enable our body to move, bend, and flex so that we can participate actively in all the activities we enjoy.
