Orthopaedics is the study of diseases and disorders of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones of the body in patients of all ages. This encompasses fractures, injuries and diseases of the spine, pelvis, arms and legs. Orthopaedics is a rewarding career for those who choose to enter this surgical subspecialty. The surgeries performed typically are among the most reliable, cost-effective procedures in health care. In many cases, patients achieve relief of their symptoms within several weeks to months after surgery, and quickly return to their preoperative function.
