Orthopedic surgery is an operation performed by a medical specialist such as an orthopedist or orthopedic surgeon, who is trained to assess and treat problems that develop in the bones, joints, and ligaments of the human body.
Orthopedic surgery addresses and attempts to correct problems which arise in the skeleton and its attachments, the ligaments and tendons.
It may also include some problems of the nervous system, such as those that arise from injury of the spine. These problems can occur at birth, through injury, or as the result of aging.
They may be acute, as in an accident or injury, or chronic, as in many problems related to aging.
