Find an Orthopedic Surgeon

An orthopedic surgeon treats injuries, diseases, and disorders of the muscular and skeletal systems, including those of the joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. They use their knowledge of anatomy and specialized equipment to restore or make changes to the inside of the body. Orthopedic surgeons are responsible for patient care before, during, and after surgery. Though they have a broad understanding of the full musculoskeletal system, most orthopedic surgeons specialize in certain areas or certain injuries, such as shoulder reconstruction or ACL tears.
