Orthopedics is a medical specialty focused on the care of the musculoskeletal system, which consists of muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, joints and connective tissue. This system provides form, support, stability and movement of the human body as well as protection of internal organs, storage of minerals and fat, and blood cell formation.

Orthopedics is a broad field encompassing a wide range of medical problems. Therefore, many orthopedic surgeons specialize in areas such as hand surgery, pediatrics, spine, sports medicine and joint replacement. Much of their medical practice involves treating injuries and conditions with medication or surgery, or by using physical therapy, and equipment such as braces, casts, or splints. With the goals of eliminating pain and maximizing function for every patient.

• tendonitis
