Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that focus on the musculoskeletal system, skeletal system, and its interconnected components. An orthopedist is a doctor who specializes in the treatment of joints, bones, ligaments and nerves. Orthopedists treat a variety of musculoskeletal ailments, including sports injuries, joint discomfort, and back problems, with both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. It's a frequent misperception that orthopedic doctors usually advise surgery for bone and joint disorders. Surgery is usually the last option. Instead, the orthopedic specialist is likely to suggest non-surgical options.

Common orthopedic conditions
Arthritis - Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age.
Bursitis - Bursitis is inflammation or irritation of a bursa sac. You have these sacs all over your body.
Fibromyalgia - Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.
Fractures - Fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture.
Osteoporosis - Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture.
Soft-Tissue Injuries - The most common soft tissues injured are muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
