Orthopaedics is a medical specialty that focuses on treating injuries to the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that comprise the musculoskeletal system. These structures provide stability to the body and enable us to flex, bend, and move. There are a variety of illnesses and injuries that can cause damage to the tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Treatments for these disorders can be nonsurgical or surgical.
